Bowel Cancer Screening

Don’t forget to do your bowel screening test!

All men and women aged 50–74 are invited for bowel screening. Bowel screening involves taking a simple test at home every two years.

Bowel screening has recently been the subject of an advertising campaign across Scotland as part of the Detect Cancer Early programme.

Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland. Every year in Scotland, almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease.

Although bowel cancer is common, it is also highly treatable if detected early.. If we find bowel cancer early enough, there’s more than a 90% chance of successful treatment. The sooner it’s caught, the easier it is to treat.

Over 75

If you’re 75 or over you can still take a bowel screening test every two years if you want to. You won’t automatically be  sent  a test kit though so you’ll need to ask  for one.

It’s still free – just call the Bowel Screening Centre Helpline on 0800 0121 833
