Bowel polyp rapid home test is important for early detection of colon cancer. This rapid test will allow early identification of potential occult blood or intestinal conditions.
Within Europe colon cancer is third place among malignant tumours among men and women after breast cancer.
Who you should take the bowel polyp detection test every year?
- If you are over 40 years old (both women and men);
- if you have cancer in your family;
- if you have at least one of the following symptoms, you need to test yourself today:
- chronic diarrhoea or constipation, or both;
- abdominal distension, feeling of fullness or gas retention;
- weight loss and loss of appetite;
- for no apparent reason but always having a persistent mild fever (37.2 - 37.5 C);
- pain in the rectum during a bowel movement, or sitting;
Why is it so important to take the bowel occult blood test?
Studies have shown that if colon cancer is detected at an early stage, only 10% of the cases end in death within five years, while cancer detected in later stages has over a 90% mortality rate.
In 95% of cases, bowel polyps or tumours cause the large bowel (colon) cancer and they are often discovered by chance during colonoscopy or a CT colonography. If blood is detected in your stool, you can consult a doctor for advanced studies.
