Bowel Cancer Screening08-07-2019
Bowel cancer is the second most common cause of cancer in Australia, with around 80 people dying from the disease each week. Once you reach 50 years of age, your risk of bowel cancer increases.
Screening for bowel cancer in people who do not have any symptoms and are between 50 and 74 years helps to detect cancer early. Up to 90 per cent of bowel cancers can be successfully treated if they are detected early.
The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program offers free bowel cancer detection kits to eligible people between the ages of 50 and 74 years. By 2020, all eligible people between 50 and 74 years will be offered free testing every two years.
National Bowel Cancer Screening Program
The NBCSP mails a kit to eligible people after specific birthdays between the ages of 50 and 74 years. Visit the NBCSP website to find information about age eligibility. Between 2015 and 2020, more ages will be added until, by 2020, all eligible people between 50 and 74 years will be sent free test kits every two years. By 2020, around four million Australians will be offered free screening each year and this could save up to 500 lives per year.
The National Health and Medical Research Council recommends screening every one to two years for people older than 50 years who do not have symptoms or a family history of bowel cancer. The screening test offered is called an immunochemical faecal occult blood test (FOBT). You can read more here
Register as an organ donor!
This DonateLife Week we’re encouraging more Australians to register to be an organ and tissue donor and to have a conversation about it with their family and friends.
DonateLife Week is our annual community awareness campaign to promote organ and tissue donation in Australia.
Each year, events are held across Australia across the week to encourage Australians to register on the Australian Organ Donor Register (AODR) and to tell their family and friends they want to be a donor.
Did you know only one in three Australians have joined the AODR, even though 81 per cent believe registration of donation decisions is important*?
Registration is important and so is having a conversation about it. In 2018, 9 out of 10 families agreed to donation when their family member was on the donor register. Consent for donation was given in 7 out of 10 cases when the family had prior knowledge of their loved one’s wishes. This dropped to 5 out of 10 families agreeing to donation when the family was unaware of their wishes.
More than 1,400 Australians are today on wait lists for a life-saving or life-transforming transplant. If you are willing to one day save lives by becoming an organ and tissue donor, please register and discuss your decision with your family and friends.
