Q. There is a history of colorectal cancer in my family. Although I have shown no symptoms, I would like to get screened for it. I am not comfortable doing a colonoscopy. Is there any non-invasive method that is used for screening?
A. Yes, the Epi proColon test is a non-invasive tool used for screening for colorectal cancer. It is recommended for people above the age of 50. It is the first molecular DNA blood test for colorectal cancer screening, which detects methylated Septin 9 in plasma. It is FDA approved for patients that have refused FIT testing or colonoscopy.
