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.
