Meet Stephen

Stephen didn’t have any symptoms when he went in for his colonoscopy, but he was over 50 and he knew that it was time to get one. Even then, it took quite some time to finally get an appointment, and he’s so glad that he persisted with doctor’s offices and got screened. The colonoscopy came back to show that he had colon cancer: not the results he was expecting.

Meet Julie

Initially misdiagnosed as a gallbladder issue, Julie’s mother had a colonoscopy to “rule out” any colon issues. Upon completing the colonoscopy, the doctor couldn’t rule out cancer, so they had to wait for the biopsy results. It turned out that she had Stage 4 colon cancer, and had probably had it for 7-10 years prior to its discovery.

A Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) is an at-home test that looks for hidden (occult) blood in your stool (fecal matter). Colon cancers, even early ones, tend to be fragile and bleed easily. The FOBT kit looks for trace amounts of blood in the stool, amounts that would not be visible to the naked eye.
