BowelScreen Australia® is a pharmacy-based bowel cancer awareness, education and screening program for the Australian community using a clinically proven, sensitive and reliable immunochemical faecal occult blood test.
BowelScreen Australia® began as a collaboration between Bowel Cancer Australia and the Pharmacy Guild of Australia, with the support of Enterix Australia (manufacturer and accredited pathology laboratory for the InSure® immunochemical test).
Bowel cancer screening every 1 to 2 years is recommended for both men and women -
The aim of screening is to find any polyps or to find cancer early when it is easier to treat and cure.
People experiencing symptoms or who have a personal/family history of bowel cancer or polyps are advised to discuss appropriate screening for the disease with their GP.
