Lane Regional Medical Center To Distribute FREE Colon Cancer Screening Kits

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

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.

Registration is not required.  For more information call (225) 658-4587.
