Bowel screening programme

Bowel Screening Wales Programme Information

What is bowel cancer?bowel screening wales - sgrinio coluddion cymru

  • Bowel cancer is also known as colon, rectal or colorectal cancer. Bowel cancer is a malignant tumour at the end of the gastrointestinal tract

What are the symptoms?

Recent, persistent changes in bowel habits:

  • Inconsistency, such as diarrhoea and constipation
  • Infrequency such as going a lot more or a lot less
  • Incompleteness of bowel action
  • Bleeding / mucus
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Unexplained anaemia and / or severe gut pain

Why screen for bowel cancer?

  • Bowel cancer screening aims to detect bowel cancer at an early stage (in people with no symptoms), when treatment is more likely to be effective
  • Regular bowel cancer screening has been shown to reduce the risk of dying from bowel cancer by 15 per cent

Who is screening aimed at?

  • Everybody aged 60-74 in Wales will be invited for bowel cancer screening every 2 years
  • The programme will be phased in and will start by inviting people aged between 60 and 69 to be screened

How is the test carried out?

  • If you are invited for screening, you will receive a bowel screening kit through the post
  • You will be able to carry out the test at home and in private.
