There are a number of reasons why both men and women may have traces of blood in their faeces/stools, such as haemorrhoids, polyps and, in rare cases, bowel cancer. All of these conditions can be treated more effectively and efficiently if medical advice and intervention begins as early as possible. Bowel cancer remains the third highest cause of cancer in men and women and, given the UK’s ageing population, this is unlikely to change. Bowel health screening and other medical conditions like prostate disorders are not easily discussed and can be embarrassing or awkward. Therefore, a simple home screening test can detect abnormal blood in your faeces/stool and can provide men and women with help and the incentive needed to seek medical advice and help. The benefit of carrying out a SELFCheck Bowel Health home test in privacy ensures confidentiality as well as providing the necessary incentive needed to take further steps in terms of managing personal health and earlier consultation with a healthcare professional, which will facilitate earlier medical intervention should further action be needed. The SELFCheck Bowel Health test is easy to use: it requires only one small sample of the client’s faeces/stool to perform the test and produces a visual result in less than 10 minutes. It requires no change in the user’s diet, or fasting etc.
