Bowel Cancer

This is such an easy test to take, and there is no ’embarrassment’ factor.

If you haven’t already had a test sent to you through the post, ask your GP to get a Bowel Cancer testing kit sent to you.

A dinky little package arrives, with easy-to-read instructions on how to take a sample, which you scrape onto a card and cover with a plastic cover.  It then goes into a Royal Mail approved envelope, off to the laboratory, and you receive the results shortly after.

Don’t worry if you are asked to do another test.  Apparently as the system is so new a certain percentage of patients are being asked automatically to do them again, just to be sure.  However, a warning.  If you still feel there is something wrong, go and see the doctor.
