Bowel Cancer Screening
Getting screened regularly for bowel cancer can save lives. If found early enough, bowel cancer is often completely treatable and won’t have any long-term impact on your life. If you’re over the age of 50 and haven’t had a bowel cancer screening, now is the time to get booked in with our team at Mooney Street Medical.
As part of our health & lifestyle management services, we help ensure our patients receive the care they need to live long, healthy lives. From providing reminders to ensuring you receive care when you need it, we go the extra mile to ensure you’re well-cared-for by our expert team.
What is bowel cancer screening?
Bowel cancer screening is a test or series of tests performed to check if someone has undiagnosed bowel cancer. Anyone between the ages of 50 and 74 is at higher risk for bowel cancer. By screening often and keeping track of your screenings, you can ensure any signs of bowel cancer are spotted and treated as early as possible.
We support the National Bowel Screening Program
As part of the Australian government’s National Bowel Screening Program, all Australian residents between 50-74 can receive a free home testing kit for screening. This kit aims to provide a fast and practical diagnosis as swiftly as possible, providing you with results for peace of mind and ensuring you receive treatment in as short a period as possible.
As part of our health & lifestyle management plan, our team can support you in keeping up to date on your screenings. Our reminder services ensure you are never late for routine checks and can help you keep on track for many other kinds of screening programmes held across Australia. If you’re concerned about bowel cancer screenings, our friendly and specialist team would be happy to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.
