The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care has established the ColonCancerCheck program as a population-based,organized colorectal screening program. This is recommended for patients starting at age 50.
The ColonCancerCheck program recommends screening for colorectal cancer with an FOBT kit every two years between the ages of 50 and 74 for patients at average risk for colorectal cancer. If you have a family history of colorectal cancer in a first degree relative (parent, sibling or child) or a positive FOBV, the program recommends a colonoscopy to screen for colorectal cancer.
Talk to your family physician about the right screening test for you. Information. about the ColonCancerCheck Program is available here.
The best way to screen for cervical cancer and pre-cancerous changes of the cervix is through regular Pap tests. All women who have ever had any sexual skin-to-skin contact need to have regular Pap tests starting at age 21.
You should have a Pap test every three years. If you are found to have an abnormal result, the nature and frequency of your cervical cancer screening will change.
Pap tests can stop at age 70 if you have had at least three or more normal tests in the past 10 years. The risk of getting cancer of the cervix does not go down as you get older. If you have had a hysterectomy, talk to your family physician to see if you still need a Pap test.
