Community Hospital Anderson will offer free colorectal screenings to the public with free take home colorectal screening kits during March. To reserve a free kit, call 800-777-7775. The kits can then be picked up at the Community Anderson Radiation Oncology Center, 1340 Madison Avenue, from March 1-15. Kits will be due back by Monday, April 11.
This screening is recommended for men and women age 50 and over. Colorectal cancer is the third most frequently diagnosed cancer among men and women. Deaths from colorectal cancers have declined as screenings for the disease have improved and become more common.
