Screening Program For Colorectal Cancer

The Screening Program for Colorectal Cancer provides an easy-to-use test kit called a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) to Saskatchewan residents who:

  • Are between the ages of 50 and 74;
  • Have a valid Saskatchewan Health Services card; and
  • Have not been previously diagnosed with colorectal cancer.

campaign 3 websiteMarch is Colorectal Cancer Awareness month, and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (SCA) is reminding people to Cover Your Butt in this year’s promotional screening campaign. This cheeky play on words is a call to action for residents aged 50-74 to complete the FIT (fecal immunochemical test) kit every two years. It could save your life.

The Cancer Agency’s Screening Program for Colorectal Cancer mails FIT kits to eligible Saskatchewan residents between the ages of 50-74, who have not been diagnosed with colorectal cancer and have not had a recent colonoscopy. The FIT is a quick and easy test that can be done in the comfort and privacy of your own bathroom. 

Colorectal cancer is the second most diagnosed form of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Saskatchewan. It often develops with few, if any, early warning symptoms. Approximately 90 per cent of colorectal cancers can be prevented or successfully treated if caught early. That’s why it’s so crucial that we raise awareness about the importance of regular screening.
