Are you worried about bowel cancer, or concerned that you may have symptoms of bowel cancer? Bowel cancer affects both men and women with close to 41,700 people diagnosed every year in the UK alone.

Yet, if bowel cancer (also known as colon cancer, rectal cancer or colorectal cancer) can be detected in its earliest stages, there is a greater than 90% chance of it being cured.

BowelCheck is a bowel cancer test that looks for signs of digested human blood in your stools (or poo) as this can be a sign of bowel cancer. Unlike the NHS screening program which is offered to those over 60 (50 in Scotland), our private test is available to men and women over the age of 45 and can be carried out in the comfort of your own home.

What is involved in the BowelCheck bowel cancer screening test?

BowelCheck is a Quantitative Faecal Immunochemical Test (qFIT), that detects human blood in the faeces, as this can be a sign of bowel cancer, and can be carried out in the privacy and comfort of the home. The bowel cancer screening service includes:

  1. Information on bowel cancer
  2. An online bowel cancer risk assessment questionnaire
  3. An easy to use, sterile collection kit posted to your home containing step by step instructions

Once you have completed the BowelCheck test you simply return it in the pre-paid envelope to our laboratory where it will undergo analysis.

What are the benefits of having bowel cancer screening with BowelCheck?

  • Bowel cancer screening (BowelCheck) may detect the disease at its earliest stage when there is a greater than 90% chance of curing it.
  • BowelCheck is quick, easy to do, hygienic and discreet. With regular screening, 16% fewer people die from bowel cancer.

Please note: Waiting for your results can be an anxious time, and like other screening tools, a bowel cancer test is not 100% reliable. If you have a positive result it may not necessarily mean you have bowel cancer. A bowel cancer may be missed if it’s not bleeding when the test is done.

What does the bowel cancer test cost?

BowelCheck bowel cancer test costs £85 to private individuals.
