Are you aged 50 - 74?
You're at higher risk of bowel cancer

Bowel cancer is Australia’s second biggest cancer killer. It takes more Australian lives than breast, prostate or skin cancer.

Bowel cancer doesn’t always have warning signs. A simple at-home test can help find it early, when it can be successfully treated.

Do the home test when you receive it in the mail - it could save your life!
