Bowel Cancer. Help us, Help you

Posted on February 24th, 2023

LIFE SAVING POO. Help us, Help you!

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK, and detecting it at the earliest stage makes you up to nine times more likely to be successfully treated.

But, almost one third of people who were sent an NHS bowel cancer screening test in England last year did not go on to complete it.
Just a tiny sample detects signs of cancer before you notice anything wrong. The test is simple to complete and can be done in the privacy of your own bathroom. Anyone aged 60 to 74, who lives
in England and is registered with a GP practice will be sent a test in the post automatically, every two years.

NHS England is also extending this to include all 50 to 59 year-olds by 2025.
So, the NHS is asking anyone who is sent a bowel cancer screening test to remember to complete it. Put it by the loo. Don’t put it off. Your next poo could save your life.
