Bowel Cancer Screening

Everyone living in England and between the ages of 60 and 69 is being invited to participate in a programme to screen for bowel cancer .

You are sent a kit and are required to provide samples from your bowel motion - all in the privacy of your own home ..

Not 100% accurate it will still help in the early detection of bowel cancer for some people.

Let's hope that this exercise is a great success and it helps to reduce the impact that bowel cancer can bring..

A good idea from the NHS !!!

Great to see more people making everyone aware that they should retrun their screening kits as it can save lives.

90% of bowel cancer cases can be successfully treated but only if diagnosed early enough. Currently half of people die, so making sure return their screening kits is essential.
