Why is this test important?

95% of all cases of colon (bowel) cancer result from benign tumors called polyps that grow inside the colon. This means that this type of cancer is one of the few where the development of tumours can be prevented by early intervention. Polyps in the colon often remain undetected for many years until they develop into a cancerous form. If a polyp is found in time and removed. it can half the development of colon cancer. Early detection of colon cancer is very important and everyone over the age of 40 should perform a yearly fecal occult blood test in order to minimise risk.
