Bowel cancer – the easily missed symptom of the disease you need to watch out for


Bowel cancer screening

The NHS offers two types of bowel cancer screening to adults registered with a GP in England.

The first, it explains: “All men and women aged 60 to 74 are invited to carry out a FIT or FOB test.

“Every two years, they’re sent a home test kit, which is used to collect a poo sample.

“If you’re 75 or over, you can ask for this test by calling the freephone helpline on 0800 707 60 60.”
