Dont throw away the kit. You could be throwing away your life!
If you are over 60, chances are the NHS has already sent you a kit for bowel cancer screening. If you reach 61 and haven’t had a kit give them a ring. You then should have a test every 2 years. If you have not had a kit for nearly 3 years also give them a ring. Admittedly, “scoop the poop” may not be the most comfortable of actions,. Throwing the kit away means you may not diagnose a bowel cancer early, but when its to late. Find below a leaflet that helps you to get the test sorted.
