Colon Cancer Screening

Bowel cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in Australia. Around eighty Australians die each week from the disease. Early detection and removal of pre-cancerous abnormalities have saved more than 11,000 lives since National Bowel Cancer Screening was introduced in 2006 (GESA 2009)
