Bowel Cancer Screening

ROC Private Clinic promotes bowel cancer screening to its patients.

A bowel cancer screening programme aims to detect a problem at an early stage, before you have developed any symptoms.

On the NHS people are offered a stool test every 2 years between the ages of 50-74.

Bowel cancer screening tests can be split into:

  • Tests that can find mainly cancer: These tests consist of stool tests. These tests are non-invasive but will miss any polyps that may be cancerous or have the potential to become cancerous
  • Tests that can find cancer and polyps: These tests look at the bowel itself with a camera or special imaging tests. We encourage having a colonoscopy (camera test) as polyps may be removed during this procedure before they become cancerous.

If you wish to discuss your risk of developing bowel cancer and how best to screen for it, do get in touch.
