Prevention is power – screen for HPV regularly
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. According to the CDC more that 42 million people are infected with the types of HPV that can lead to cancer.
Most cases of cervical cancer are caused by HPV. However, regular screening can detect abnormal cells early, when treatment is most effective.
It is currently estimated that about 80% of women and 90% of men will have an HPV infection at some point in their lives.
HPV is spread through skin to skin contact, meaning you can get it without having sex, even though its classified as the most common STI.
Both vaginal and penile cancers are often caused by HPV. Pre-cancerous cells and cancers caused by HPV are more treatable if detected at early stages.
You’re not too young for colon cancer – don’t ignore the early signs and get screened
While it is more common in people over 50, people as young as 20 can get colorectal cancer. Regular colorectal cancer screenings are essential for detecting cancer early, which can increase your chances for successful treatment and recovery.
Colon cancer can affect people of all ages, including young adults. It’s important to pay attention to early warning signs and get screened, regardless of your age.
According to recent research, there has been a significant increase in the number of colon cancer cases diagnosed among young adults aged 20 to 29.
Common early symptoms include abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, ongoing diarrhea, and iron deficiency anemia.
Colon cancer is a serious health concern and is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, with over 50,000 deaths reported annually.
The good news is that if colon cancer is detected early, the five-year survival rate is over 90%. This highlights the importance of timely screening and early intervention.

Once we receive your samples, the laboratory will test them and you will receive your results within 5 days. You can access your results online through our secure portal using the Prmary.Health app or the Primary.Health website.
What happens if I test positive?
If you test positive and notify us that you would like to receive a call back from our clinical team, you will receive your call after your results come in. However, if you have not selected to receive a call, you will receive your results via the selected method of contact. At that time, our clinical team will review next steps for treatment.

When should I take the test and return it?
You should take the test and mail it back as soon as you get it. If you are collecting a sample using a vaginal swab or are doing a FIT (fecal immunochemical test) and are on your period, please wait until your period is over before collecting a sample.
Can someone else order a test for me?
The test results will be connected to the account that you create to receive a test kit. So if someone else orders the kit for you and puts their name on the account, and then you take the test, your test results will be connected to their name. We can only communicate with the person whose name is connected to the account.
If you are an authorized representative of someone and are ordering a kit for the person you represent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Can I get a pregnancy test through Primary.Medical?
At this time you cannot get a pregnancy test through Primary.Medical. Note that the at-home test kits do not test for pregnancy.
Even though we are not offering pregnancy tests at this time, at-home pregnancy tests, also known as over-the-counter pregnancy tests, are an easy and accurate way to find out if you’re pregnant. They are just as effective as getting a pregnancy test in a clinic.
Does my primary care provider need to give the clinical team any of my medical information?
No, your primary care provider does not need to give the clinical team any information. The clinical team will ask you questions about your medical history.
I use a different name than my government name. Do I need to give my government name to get a test or to schedule with the clinical team?
If you use a different name than your government name, please let us know. We will need to verify your identity with your government name so you can consent for treatment.
Can the clinical team send my positive test results to my primary health provider (PCP)?
The clinical team cannot send positive test results to your PCP, but you may show your results to your PCP.
Does Primary.Medical accept insurance?
At this time, Primary.Medical does not accept insurance for at-home tests. You must pay the full price of the test. Primary.Medical will not bill your insurance for the test.
Can I submit a bill to my insurance for reimbursement?
Check with your insurance and ask them about reimbursement for self-pay services.
