					Statistics would show that colon cancer is one of the leading causes of
death worldwide. People are aware that this is life-threatening but it
looks like they still need more encouragement in order to take preventive
measures such as life line screenings. Life Line Screening also known as
the leader in preventive health screenings actually made it much easier
for people to undergo screenings. Just recently, they've introduced Fecal
Immunochemical Test or FIT. This type of test is designed to prevent
colon cancer which can be done at the comfort of your own home. So
there's no need to set an appointment and this time around you can take
the test at any time you want.Now that you have the means to detect this
type of cancer in a much earlier time, you should take advantage of this
since this is serious and can result to death. One may ask who should
take these screenings? Everyone who is 50 years old and above should take
these tests including those who feel they are in perfect shape. The
percentage that a person can develop colon cancer is high once they reach
the said age bracket and their risk increases as they age.Why take a
chance on your future when you can prevent colon cancer as early as now?
Prevention is the best option you have because once you have developed
this condition you only have a few years to live. There are available
treatments out there but this will just give you 5 or 10 extra years and
then you're done. This is not to scare people but to open their eyes to
reality that this certain type of cancer is deadly and taking life line
screenings is the best shot you got to live a longer and healthier
life.Some may think that this home screenings are very expensive and are
not really that necessary. Is it that hard to shell out $45 in exchange
for your life? People should start to show more concern in their health
and future. So if you experience symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea,
fatigue, abdominal pain and you can see blood in your stool, then that
means you are at risk of colorectal cancer. But there are some instances
wherein people don't experience any symptom at all which makes this
disease more dangerous. That's the point of having these screenings, to
find out if you are at risk or there's a possibility that you'll succumb
to colon cancer later in your life. Do something while it is still early
and while you still have enough time to make significant changes in your
life. Awareness isn't enough, you need to do something more like undergo
screenings designed to prevent and detect colon cancer. You can take
these tests at least once a year. This is actually recommended to people
who are at high risk. If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned
above or you think you are most likely to develop this disease, then you
should bring home this type of life line screenings now.
