Lane Regional Medical Center will be distributing free EZ DETECT™ test kits on Friday, March 10, from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the hospital’s front lobby, located at 6300 Main Street in Zachary.
EZ DETECT™ is the most advanced home test available to detect hidden blood in the stool which can be a sign of a problem in your digestive system, such as a growth, or polyp, or cancer in the colon or rectum. The screening kits are for use in the privacy of your own home and are simple to use.
Individuals who have a personal or family history of lower intestinal disorders, colorectal cancers, or other cancers should perform this test at least once a year. The test is not a substitute for a regular physical examination by your physician, but may indicate the need for one.
