Around 30% people who develop bowel cancer have either a hereditary contribution, family history or a combination of both. The risk of developing bowel cancer rises sharply from age 50, but the number of Australians under age 50 diagnosed with bowel cancer has been increasingly steadily.

i-screen's Bowel Cancer Check not only includes the traditional faecal occult blood test used to detect tiny amounts of blood in the stool, but also includes the progressive M2-PK tumour marker. The M2-PK test has been shown to be a highly accurate test in the detection of colorectal cancer. The detection of M2-PK does not depend on blood in the stool and can be used for the early detection of colorectal cancers and polyps which are known to be the precursors of colorectal cancer.

What we test

Colorectal Tumour Markers

This panel blends the progressive M2-PK tumour marker (not currently available on Medicare), with the more well known faecal occult blood test which is used in Australia's National Bowel Screening program.

This stool test measures

M2-PK is the key regulator of tumour metabolism and its measurement in faeces identifies gastrointestinal tumours, even in the absence of gastrointestinal bleeding.

This test is used to detect bleeding in the digestive tract, and is used in Australia's National Bowel Screening program. This test can detect tiny traces of blood in the stool, and can indicate the presence of disease at a relatively early stage when stools may appear normal.
