The Canadian Cancer Society said that simpler cancer test could save lives of thousand people. Most of people are not aware of the fact that the simple cancer test can be done at home, which will help in detecting signs of colorectal cancer. An at-home stool test is also available at some clinics and pharmacies.

People above the age of 50 or those who considered at high risk of developing the disease can get the help of this test. However, experts said that just 32% of people of that age group have been screened.

The recent annual report has highlighted the simple cancer test to detect colorectal cancer and also ensured successful treatment. According to an estimate, it was revealed that if 80% of Canadians of age 50 or older will be screened for colorectal cancer in next 10 years then around 15,000 deaths can be saved.

Manager of the Cancer Society's Essex County Unit, Judy Lund said that if the disease can be detected early then it can be easily cured. However, local campaigns have raised the awareness of the disease, but still more work needs to be done to raise more awareness.

Lund asserted, "It's so important to talk to your doctor and get this one checked because if you catch it early, it's one that has a really good success rate -and that's the message we have to get out to people".
