There are several ways to screen

There are several ways to screen early for colon cancer, so let’s go over those here. Depending on your medical history, family medical history, or symptoms you may already be experiencing, one method might be better for you than another. Speak to your doctor about which method will ensure the best results in your case. The simplest form of screening is a stool sample. You can collect your stool at home using a kit provided by your doctor. No sedation is required and you do not need to change your diet for the collection. A stool test can detect changes in your cells that could indicate precancerous changes or cancer. If something is found, further testing will be required. However, it’s worth noting that Mayo Clinic says a stool test is not as sensitive or accurate as a colonoscopy.
