When should I begin bowel cancer screening?

In patients who have no symptoms or family history of bowel cancer, the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program would be suitable for you. Please discuss this with your GP. For patients with a family history of bowel cancer and/or patients experiencing symptoms such as rectal bleeding, a persistent change in bowel habit or abdominal pain please speak with your doctor as soon as possible.
