What people are saying

After a test returned a positive result, Mr Bartley had two pre-cancerous polyps removed. “It’s about getting people to take an interest in looking out for themselves - everyone gets a kit when they turn 50, so people need to make sure they use them.”

A Bartley, Wembley.

I was shocked when the FOBT result led to the diagnosis of a ‘cancerous spot’ which doctors said could have been lurking on my bowel wall for up to two years. Fortunately key-hole surgery removed it all and I was back on the golf course within 6 weeks. ‘By doing that test it has definitely saved my life.’

I cannot stress strongly enough how important this screening is. It literally has saved my life. I was diagnosed without any signs or symptoms so if I’d waited until signs and symptoms occurred I would have had a much harder battle to fight.
