Colon Cancer Prevention / Screening

 

 

The Colon Cancer Prevention Program (CCPP) was developed by Cancer Care Nova Scotia with the goal of reducing the number of deaths from colon cancer in Nova Scotia. It is a screening program designed to help find cancer and pre-cancerous growths in Nova Scotians aged 50-74.  If these growths are found early, colon cancer can be prevented.

Every two years, Nova Scotians between the ages of 50-74 will be sent a colon cancer screening kit in the mail.

Please see the Colon Cancer Screening FAQ more detailed information.
