How important is a bowel cancer screening test?

Bowel cancer can be treated successfully if detected in its early stages; however, fewer than 40% of bowel cancers are currently detected early. Research has shown screening for bowel cancer, using a screening test, either colonoscopy or Faecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) reduces death from the disease.
