Bowel Cancer Screening

Screening tests are check-ups done to detect cancer early.

Colon or Bowel cancer screening can reduce the risk of death from bowel cancer.

The Australian Government is currently introducing a Bowel Cancer Screening Programme and offers testing to people turning 50, 55 or 65 years of age between January 2008 and December 2010.

Who should be tested?

  • Men and women who are 50 and over.
  • If you have a family history (that means your father, mother, sister or brother have or had bowel cancer) then you have a higher risk of bowel cancer, and screening should often start at a younger age.
