Cancer

Free Colon Cancer Screenings Available for Colon Cancer Awareness Month
Colon and rectal cancer are a leading cause of cancer death for men and women despite being one of the most preventable forms of cancer if treated early. Regular colonoscopy screening should start at age 45 or sooner with family history of cancer or other risk factors. Approximately 70 percent of people with colorectal cancer have no family history.

From March 1 to April 15, people who are age 45 or older can receive a free immunochemical fecal occult blood test (iFOBT) Take-Home Colon Screening kit at participating CentraCare sites while supplies last.
