BOWEL SCREENING

Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast

cancer. Every year, almost 4,000 people are diagnosed with the disease. For men

the risk of getting colorectal cancer over the age of 50 is 1 in 18 (5.5%) and for

women the equivalent risk is 1 in 22 (4.5%).

The Scottish Bowel Screening Programme invites all men and women in Scotland

between the ages of 50 to 74 for screening every two years. They are invited using

their CHI number and a letter is sent to the address at which they are registered with

Practitioner Service Division. Once a patient is 'called' they will be recalled during the

same month every 2 years until they are 75.
