Bowel Screening promotion

0 Replies

In the UK someone dies from bowel cancer (also known as colorectal cancer and might also be called colon cancer or rectal cancer) every 30 minutes. This statistic is even more shocking when we consider that regular bowel cancer screening could easily slash the number of deaths from the disease.Bowel cancer incidence is strongly related to age, with the highest incidence rates being in older people. In the UK in 2013-2015, on average each year more than 4 in 10 (44%) of new cases were in people aged 75 and over.Age-specific incidence rates rise steeply from around age 50-54. The highest rates are in the 85 to 89 age group for males and females. The average age for diagnosis is 68 in men and 72 in women.And, with bowel cancer screening being so simple, there really is no reason not to get tested.Get tested at Medcare from just 30 euros.
