Free Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) Screening

Colorectal cancer is the number 1 cancer in Singapore. Screening for colorectal cancer should begin from the age of 50 for those with no symptoms. The FIT (Faecal Immunochemical Test) checks your stool for blood that cannot be seen to detect signs of cancer. If you are a Singaporean or Permanent Resident above 50 and have not gone for colorectal screening in the past year, collect a free FIT kit from SCS and our partner distribution locations.
