FIT screening

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers. The good news is that CRC incidence and mortality can be reduced significantly if detected early enough.

Faecal immunochemical tests (FIT) are non-invasive and can detect blood in stool invisible to the naked eye. Due to its simplicity, FIT is currently considered the best non-invasive test for CRC screening.

Invest a little time in your own health by taking the FIT to prevent or detect colon cancer early on.

October - Scalp cooling saves hair follicles during chemotherapy

Chemotherapy often leads to alopecia. Scalp cooling during chemotherapy minimises patients’ hair loss. The lower temperature and reduced metabolism in the scalp increase the probability that hair follicles survive (see right hair root) and keep a structure similar to an untreated hair follicle (see hair root in the middle). Without scalp cooling the haircells are severely damaged (see left hair root) and the hair will break.
