Bowel Cancer Risk (FIT test)

Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT)

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer in the UK. The FIT test is an accurate method of identifying tiny, invisible particles of blood in your stool, which can be an indication of bowel cancer or other diseases that affect the bowels. It is one of the best methods to help with early detection of bowel cancer. You do not need to bring a stool sample with you to your health check. Instead, you will be given a self-collection kit with full instructions on how to collect a small stool sample at home, which you can then post to our lab for analysis.
