Why get tested?

When diagnosed during its initial phases, approximately 90% of individuals with colon cancer can receive effective treatment.

The American Cancer Society recommends screening at age 45 due to rising colon cancer cases in those 50 with average risk.

A significant number of individuals with colon cancer in its early stages exhibit no symptoms and identified through screening procedures.

About this test

Symptoms When to test Biomarkers

This test is most commonly used as a preventative screening in healthy adults. You may also want to use this test if you have symptoms such as: 

  • A change in bowel habits (like frequent diarrhea or constipation)
  • Abdominal pain, aches, or cramps that don’t go away
  • Unexplained weight loss

If you are experiencing symptoms like these, or you have a positive result on this test, you should visit your doctor to see if additional testing is needed.

This test is recommended for adults aged 50 to 74, with average risk. This screening is usually performed yearly. 

Please note: This test should NOT be used in place of regular colonoscopies for people with inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis), a personal or family history of colorectal cancer or colorectal polyps, or certain genetic conditions like familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (Lynch syndrome).

This test is called a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT). It is used yearly as a screening test for colon cancer. It does not directly detect cancer, but checks for another indicator sometimes called a biomarker. The screening is intended to detect problems early so they can be treated before they become serious.

In this case, the test detects hidden blood in the stool (poop) that may not be visible to the naked eye. Blood in the stool can indicate the presence of precancerous growths or colon cancer. However, pre-cancerous growth or cancers do not always bleed, so the test could miss them (a false negative result). Other benign (non-cancerous) conditions of the digestive tract, like hemorrhoids, can also cause blood in the stool (a false positive result). 

Please note: This test does NOT determine if you have colon cancer. If you have a positive result you should see your doctor. You may require further testing, such as a colonoscopy.

Who is the home colon cancer screening test suitable for?

This test is called a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT). It is used yearly as a screening test for colon cancer. It does not directly detect cancer, but checks for another indicator sometimes called a biomarker. The screening is intended to detect problems early so they can be treated before they become serious.

What samples are required for this test?

In-Sure ONE is the only Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) that is performed using toilet water collected from a single bowel movement. You only need to gently brush the surface of the stool in water for about 5 seconds with the convenient, long-handled blue brush, and then simply collect the toilet water on the test card.

Why do I need to activate my test?

Activating the test connects you to the unique alphanumeric barcode within your Efunctional sample collection kit. The laboratory cannot process your sample if the test is not activated and linked to you. You should only activate your test when you are ready to take your sample.

Are there medical professionals involved in the process?

Yes. Efunctional has a team of board-certified physicians who will review your order and results and have created detailed result breakdowns for your testing journey.

When should I collect and return my sample?

In-Sure ONE test samples are collected in a privacy of your home. There are no diet or medication restrictions associated with this test.
