Bowel Cancer Australia recommends participating in screening appropriate to your personal level of risk.
Medical guidelines recommend people at average risk of bowel cancer screen using a faecal immunochemical test (FIT) every 2 years from age 50. If you have one relative diagnosed with bowel cancer at age 55 years or older, screening should be considered every 2 years from age 45.
The Australian designed and manufactured test and accredited pathology services are provided by Clinical Genomics.
Please note to receive your BowelScreen Australia screening kit, your details will be sent to Clinical Genomics pathology service and they will mail it to you.
Please allow up to 10 working days for your kit to arrive.
