Ontario has transitioned from the fecal occult blood test (FOBT) to FIT for colon cancer screening. FIT is a simple and painless at-home test that checks stool (poop) for tiny amounts of blood, which could be caused by colon cancer and/or pre-cancerous polyps (growths in the colon or rectum that can turn into cancer over time).
Primary Care Providers will request LifeLabs to mail eligible people a FIT kit. Screening participants should mail their completed FIT to LifeLabs or drop it off at a LifeLabs Patient Service Centre as soon as possible.
