Bowel cancer is Australia’s second biggest cancer killer. Cancer Council is encouraging eligible Australians to participate in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program. When your kit arrives in the mail – make sure you do the test, it could save your life.
Bowel Cancer- A simple home test could save your life
Tragically, bowel cancer claims the lives of around 100 Australians every week. If you or one of your loved ones is aged 50 or over, you're at higher risk of bowel cancer.
The good news is that, if found early, 90% of bowel cancers can be successfully treated. This is why screening is so important.
If you're aged between 50 and 74, you will receive a free home testing kit from the Government. Do the test – it could save your life.
If you don't receive a kit, call the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program Information Line on 1800 118 868 to see when you will.
