Keeping up with screenings is one of the best ways to stop colon cancer, the second-leading cause of cancer death in the U.S.

When colon cancer is caught early, the disease can be cured in 9 out of 10 cases. Screening can also prevent cancer by helping doctors find and remove polyps before they become cancerous.

Kaiser Permanente is proud to lead the nation in colorectal cancer screening rates. To make it easy and convenient, we use a non-invasive test called FIT whenever possible, completed in the privacy of your own home. Talk with your care team to determine what type of screening is best for you based on your age and risk.
