Have you discussed bowel screening with your patients?

  • Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. If found early, up to 90% of cases can be treated successfully.
  • Bowel cancer often has no obvious early warning signs. The good news is, a bowel screening test can detect changes in the bowel long before your patient notices any problems.
  • The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program provides free bowel screening kits for eligible people aged 50 to 74. So, have the bowel screening chat with your patients.
