Colon cancer is Preventable, Beatable, and Treatable

Colon cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, but it doesn't have to be. Did you know being screened for colon cancer could save your life?

If you are age 50 or older or have a family history of colon cancer, request a free in-home screening test today from Public Health Solutions by calling 888-310-0565, e-mail nkingston@phsneb.org or talk to your doctor about getting screening for colon cancer.

A Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) is an easy in home test to screen for colon cancer. The FOBT is a lab test used to check stool samples for hidden (occult) blood. Blood found in the stool may indicate colon cancer or pre-cancerous polyps that have developed in the colon or rectum.
