"When I received my results, I was very interested to see some hormonal imbalances. I didn't even know that was a possibility! But the Welzo report provided me with clear and detailed information about what was going on inside my body, and what I needed to do to address the imbalances."

Colon Polyps

Our state of the art home bowel cancer self-check test detects tiny droplets of blood in your stool sample. This can be indicative of colon polyps which release blood into your stool, indicating a tumour may be present. However, other conditions such as haemorrhoids and bowel inflammation can also cause blood to appear in stool, therefore false positives can occur.  

How does the test work?

The test can be performed directly in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Use the sample stick and three samples from a recent stool sample (this should be from various areas of the stool sample, such as the beginning, middle and end). Place these stool samples into the test tube provided and two drops of the testing solution. Wait for 5 minutes and shake the test tube thoroughly. After 5 minutes have elapsed use the instructions inside the testing kit to take a result reading.

Additional Information

Home tests can be a helpful way to monitor your health and catch any potential problems early. If you do find blood in your stool, it's important to see a doctor so they can investigate further.

There are a few different home test kits available, so it's worth doing some research to find one that's right for you. Once you've got your kit, simply follow the instructions and send off your sample for analysis.

Bowel cancer is the second most common type of cancer in the UK, so it's important to be aware of the symptoms. If you notice any changes in your bowel habits, or if you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to speak to your doctor. Early diagnosis is key when it comes to bowel cancer, so don't delay in getting checked out.

Additional Insight from Dr Sameer Nakedar, MBBS, MRCGP, PGCert

The FIT test is used to investigate cancers and rectal bleeding, it tests for tiny traces of blood in the stool that may not be visible. Usually is a sign of cancer, or a bleeding disorder (such as haemorrhoids) would usually prompt someone to do more invasive testing, for example camera testing.

Expert’s Opinion

Experts Opinion

"A bowel cancer test is a good starting process to try and navigate people with positive FIT tests to the right investigations that could detect cancers or diseases accordingly. The FIT test is a more up-to-date screening test that is used to pick up traces of blood in the bowel and early detection can lead to more specific investigations for people with a positive result."
