Bowel cancer is a treatable disease if it is diagnosed early and screening is one of the best ways of catching it early. According to Cancer Research UK, screening produces the highest number of early stage diagnoses for bowel cancer.
Detecting bowel cancer early can hugely increase your chance of survival. Nine out of ten cancers can be successfully treated if they are caught in the early stages before they have spread. Rapid detection of bowel cancer really does save lives.
