About one in 20 people in the UK will develop bowel cancer during their lifetime. It is the third most common cancer in the UK, and the second leading cause of cancer deaths, with over 16,000 people dying from it each year.
Regular bowel cancer screening has been shown to reduce the risk of dying from bowel cancer by 16%.
The NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme offers screening every two years to all men and women aged 60 to 69.
