Shivan Mehta of the Perelman School of Medicine spoke about take-at-home tests as a convenient way to screen patients for colon cancer. “The FIT test has been around for a very long time,” he said. “It’s a lot easier to do than a colonoscopy. But in order to have similar effectiveness to colonoscopies, it has to be done every year. Both have pros and cons. Ultimately, the best test is the one that someone completes.”
