Find out how we produce our information|
This section provides information and support for people who have had, or are about to have, a bowel cancer| screening test.
Screening is a way of testing people to see if a disease can be picked up early, which is when it has the best chance of being cured. This information explains how bowel cancer screening is done, its risks and benefits, and what happens if you have an abnormal test result.
We hope that it answers some of the questions you may have about bowel screening, and about the tests and treatment you may have if you have an abnormal result.
