Cancer Centers offer low-cost, take home colorectal cancer screening kits

March 6, 2013

During the month of March – National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month – the Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare are offering take-home colorectal cancer screening kits to promote the need for early detection and diagnosis of this very treatable disease. The screening kit is a simple take-home kit that checks for blood in the stool. The screening is recommended for both men and women over the age of 50, those who have a family history of the disease or who may have colorectal polyps, and individuals who have chronic inflammatory bowel disease.

Screening kits can be picked up during the entire month of March at both CCNAH locations:
• CCNAH – Sedona, 3700 W. State Route 89A; 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday; 928-204-4160
• CCNAH – Flagstaff, 1200 N. Beaver Street; 8:30 – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday; 928 773-2261

The screening kit costs just $25 (cash or check only) to cover the laboratory testing; results will be mailed back to each individual participating.

The Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare are located in Sedona and Flagstaff and are devoted to the comprehensive treatment and early diagnosis of cancer through advanced technology and individualized care. For more information on services and treatments offered at the Cancer Centers, visit
