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.

White blood cells (WBC, leukocytes)

White blood cells, also called leucocytes, are vital parts of the immune system. They help protect the body against infections and foreign invaders. WBC are round and, if they are granulocytes, granulated. They measure approximately 1.5 to 2 times the diameter of a red blood cell. In urine, the most common type of WBC are neutrophils (i.e. neutrophilic granulocytes), whereas lymphocytes or eosinophils (eosinophilic granulocytes) are rare findings in urine. A small number of WBC can be present in healthy urine but increased counts can point towards inflammation or infection within the urinary system.
