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.

What we test

Bowel Cancer Screen

Bowel (or colorectal) cancer causes the second highest number of cancer deaths in Australia after lung cancer. However, around 90% of bowel cancer cases are cured if detected early. Screening for bowel cancer typically involves a series of 3 faecal occult tests which screens your stools for tiny amounts of blood.

This stool test includes:

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.

Bowel Cancer Check
4 tests included
$129 AUD
Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world - 1 in 13 Australians will develop the disease in their lifetime. When identified early, 90% of bowel cancer cases can be successfully treated.
Gut Health Check
34 tests included
$349 AUD
There are medical explanations and labels for many gut problems, but the big exception is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Since many gut disorders have similar symptoms to IBS, ruling out a more serious underlying gut disease is an important first step.
Parasite PCR Check
18 tests included
$139 AUD
Some gut problems can be a consequence of an undetected gut infection. A significant number of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) cases could actually be due to undiagnosed gut pathogens such as Blastocystis hominis and Dientamoeba fragilis.
