What is bowel screening?
A bowel screening is one of the most important health checks for men and women over the age of 50. It can help identify potential symptoms and warning signs of bowel cancer and related illnesses.
With a bowel screening, we carry out a CT Colonography to examine your colon and other parts of your abdomen, including the kidneys. In comparison to a standard colonoscopy, it is much less invasive.
Bowel cancer is much more treatable if it is caught early, so it is vital that you go for a screening if you have symptoms of bowel cancer, including blood in your stool.
