Aware­ness

Dur­ing the early stages of bowel cancer, pa­tients may have no symp­toms but almost 90 per cent of bowel cancer cases can be treated suc­cess­fully when de­tected early, mak­ing screen­ing so im­por­tant.

Get tested by us­ing a Bow­elscan kit, avail­able at www.lets­beat­bow­el­cancer.com.au/home/ or­der-a-test/.
