Home Screening Test (FIT)

Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT)The Newfoundland and Labrador Colon Cancer Screening Program will use a test known as the Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT).
 
The FIT will check for blood in the stool that cannot be seen with the naked eye.  It is more advanced and more sensitive than other available tests and is considered an effective method for screening those at average risk for colon cancer.
 
The test will be used once every two years by participants in the Newfoundland and Labrador Colon Cancer Screening Program.
