Risk and symptoms

As a unique feature for this bowel awareness campaign you can test your symptoms and risk for bowel cancer.

Please remember that high risk of bowel cancer does not mean you will get bowel cancer; it merely means that you are at high risk.

By changing lifestyle you can reduce the risk of cancer by up to 40%!

Please be aware that the BowelCheck service is only appropriate for people over 45 years of age, regardless of your risk outcome.

The lifetime risk of developing bowel cancer is 1 in 14 for men and 1 in 19 for women.
