Bowel Cancer Screening
Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. The earlier we find bowel cancer, the easier it is to treat and the chances of survival are higher.
Bowel cancer screening is one of the best ways to detect bowel cancer at an early stage. It can also detect changes in the bowel that could lead to cancer in the future.
Men and women aged between 56 and 74 (who are registered with an NHS GP) are invited to take part in bowel cancer screening every 2 years. You will receive a bowel cancer screening kit through the post and you complete it in the comfort of your own home.
It’s free, it’s easy, no fuss! So please, don’t delay, complete your kit today!
