Colon cancer ranks as the third most prevalent cancer in Thailand. Unfortunately, many patients only become aware of their condition when symptoms become apparent, such as blood in the stool, persistent alterations in bowel habits, abdominal pain, or unexplained weight loss. By this stage, the cancer is often in an advanced, severe state, significantly increasing the risk of a poor outcome.
This underscores the critical importance of colon cancer screening. Regular screenings can identify abnormalities even before symptoms manifest. Early detection empowers healthcare providers to take proactive measures, potentially preventing the onset of colon cancer or enabling more effective intervention should it be detected.
With comparable accuracy level to high-priced colon cancer screening services provided in hospitals, Welala FIT offers you with a significantly more affordable and convenient colon cancer screening experience for individuals seeking regular, early detection and monitoring of colon cancer.
Colon cancer predominantly affects individuals over the age of 50 but can occur in people of all ages and genders. The typical age range for colon cancer diagnosis in Thailand falls between 60 and 65 years. However, it's concerning that approximately 30% of these diagnoses are made when the cancer has already progressed to stage 5.
What makes colon cancer unique is its gradual development, spanning roughly 10 years from stage 0 to stage 5. This slow progression underscores the importance of early and ongoing testing.
Individuals with a family history of colon cancer, especially direct relatives like parents, siblings, or children, are also at an increased risk and should be particularly vigilant about regular screenings.
It is not advisable to let the sample fall into water or get wet as it may lead to inaccurate test results. Therefore, it should be re-collected.
If there is blood contamination, it is recommended to seek medical consultation to identify the cause (samples with blood contamination will always yield a positive result).
Your collected sample will be sent to laboratories in the country that have received certification for quality from the Department of Medical Sciences.
