General Population

Average Risk
Men and Women, ages 50 – 74
Every 2 years

Ontario men and women ages 50 to 74 with no symptoms or close family history (parent, sibling or child with colon cancer) are encouraged to take a free, easy, at-home screening test called a Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) every two years. The FOBT is available from your healthcare provider.

Anyone who doesn’t have a healthcare provider can visit the Mobile Cancer Screening Coach or call Telehealth Ontario’s colon cancer screening line at 1-866-828-9213 to get an FOBT kit.
