Having no symptoms (example - blood in the stool) means there is no cancer?

The truth is that many people with colorectal cancer experience no symptoms in the early stages of the disease. By the time cancer symptoms appear, it may be too late. Do not wait for symptoms before getting screened. Regular screening can detect polyps or colorectal cancer early and increase cancer survivorship.

 

FIT KIT sticker

Screening tests such as the Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) is a preliminary test that detects traces of blood in the stool that is invisible to the naked eye, a common sign of colorectal polyps and cancers. This test is safe, easy to do, and can be carried out in the comfort of your home. It should be done once a year.
