Bowel cancer is Australia’s #1 internal cancer, killing more than 4,000 men and women every year – but it’s very curable if you catch it early. And that’s what Rotary’s $15 Bowelscan test kit is designed to do: catch cancer before it catches you.
From 2016, the Bowelscan kit is even more convenient. There are no dietary restrictions whatsoever prior to using it, handling is easier, and you just post it back for free pathology testing. Soon after, you’ll be notified of the result.
Recommended for everyone 40 and over, the kits are available from participating pharmacies between May 1 and May 31. Rotary runs Bowelscan in May every year, to help West Australians get into the habit of repeating the test annually.
