Bowel cancer is one of the most treatable cancers

– if it’s found early.

A simple test can help find changes in the bowel long before any symptoms occur. People aged between 50 and 74 are sent a free bowel screening test in the mail under the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP).

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in the NBCSP is low. Doctors, nurses and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers can help encourage more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to screen.
