If you are aged 75 or over, you can ask for a bowel cancer screening test by calling the free bowel screening centre helpline on 0800 0121 833.

Call the screening helpline on 0800 0121 833 or visit NHS Inform  for more information about bowel screening in Scotland.

Why take the test?

There are many important reasons for taking the home bowel screening test:

• Home testing prevents 150 deaths from bowel cancer every year.

• Home testing can find bowel cancer at an early stage – even if you’ve had no symptoms.

• When bowel cancer is detected early, it can often be cured.

• Bowel cancer is Scotland’s third most common cancer, with almost 4,000 people diagnosed every year.

• Bowel cancer is more common in people over 50, especially men.

• The test can find other changes in your bowel, such as non-cancerous growths called ‘polyps’. Most of these can be removed easily, and this can prevent cancer from developing.
