FIT stool test

Bowel cancer stool test

With more than 42,000 cases per year, bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK. As a diagnosis is often delayed, it has become the second biggest cause of deaths from cancer. However, the chances of successful treatment is much higher if bowel cancer is identified early by a bowel cancer stool blood test. We can provide blood tests to identify bowel cancer markers within 1-3 working days. Although anyone can develop bowel cancer the risks are higher as you get older. There are also other risks which can be reduced by modifying your lifestyle. Symptoms of bowel cancer can include an altered bowel habit, blood in your stool, weight loss, fatigue, abdominal pain and bloating. The best way to confirm a diagnosis is by performing a colonoscopy - a camera test to look at your large intestine.

What's included in a FIT stool test kit?

This is a simple and hygienic home testing kit that we provide. It detects very small amounts of blood in your stool for which bowel cancer is one possible cause. We'll send you full instructions of how to take the test with the kit.

This is a camera test looking at your large intestine to identify the cause of bleeding

Frequently asked questions
  • This is easy and straightforward, and full instructions will accompany the kit.

  • You will take the test on a day and time that’s convenient to you, in your own home. It’s simple, quick and should only take 10-15 minutes.

  • Yes, this shouldn’t be a problem as food and drink does not affect the test. The test only looks for very small amounts of blood in the lower intestine.

  • Once our lab receives your home testing kit with your sample, they will issue a result within 1 working day. We’ll inform you of the result the same working day. So, it’s really important that you take your test and post it as soon as possible to avoid delay.

  • All our tests are reviewed by our certified doctors and shared with you through our secure online portal. If it’s positive, please do not worry as most people with a positive FIT stool test don’t have bowel cancer. However, you may need a camera test to look at your large intestine to identify a cause.
