DON’T DELAY do a bowel test today

Bowel cancer can develop without any symptoms.

The good news is, there is a simple test that can help find bowel changes early.

Australians between the ages of 50 and 74 are sent a free kit in the mail.

If you receive a bowel screening kit in the mail, do it, even if you feel well. It could save your life!

If found early, bowel cancer can be successfully treated.


Call the Program Info Line on 1800 118 868 to check your eligibility for a free kit, if you are eligible a kit will be sent to you.
