Description

Cancer of the bowel is the third most common cancer in the UK, usually taking 5-10 years for colon cancer formation this simple home test will help you monitor your bowel health in the privacy of your own home.

So why test for blood in the stool? Well 95% of all cases of colon cancer develop from benign tumours called polyps, that have been left undetected for years. Bowel cancer is the 3rd most common cancer in the UK. Early detection of polyps in the bowel means that they can be removed before they have a chance to grow into any malignant forms.

Who is this bowel test for? Everyone, but health care professionals strongly recommended that adults aged 40+ should have a test

How is the test performed? In the privacy of your own home! With the sample stick provided take three samples from a recent stool (from different areas of the stool, beginning middle and end) Put this into the tube supplied. Add 2 drops of the solution provided, shake well and wait 5 minutes to take the result reading.

So, what does blood in the stool mean, does it mean I have colon cancer? Certainly not, blood in the stool can be caused by a number of conditions. Polyps are benign tumours which release blood in the colon. Besides polyps, several other conditions may produce a positive test result. These can be bowel inflammations, haemorrhoids (piles) or even changes in the digestive system.


What is the interpretation of the results for this bowel health test?

Bowel Cancer test Results at home

Some medicines, alcohol and some pre-existing conditions may affect the result of this test. Please read the instruction manual for details. Negative results do not exclude the possibility of a bowel condition.

The test should not be interpreted after 15 minutes.

How often should you test for bowel health?  Persons over the age of 40 should test at least once a year for presence of hidden blood in the stool.

What should you do if your result is positive? In all cases, you should consult your doctor to determine the source of the blood. Do not make any medical decisions without consulting your doctor.

As recommended in the Daily Mail 'Good Health' section

Here's what their expert said  "Though this test may pick up blood in the stool it is not an indicator for colorectal cancer itself, this home test kit essentially works in the same way as the free colorectal screening test offered to anyone over 60" says Paul Hurlstone, a consultant endoscopist at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.'

We agree, and if you qualify for a free test (over 60's) please go along and see your GP about getting an appointment, if you are not sure - then take this test! It is quick, easy and easy to use and will help you to keep a good eye on your own health.

Easy to use, in the comfort of my own home. Priceless. Review by Fred
Product Rating
I am 71 and I can get a free test on the NHS but the delay and inconvenience of it means this home test was an easier, simpler way to do it. I am sure my self testing was a fraction of the cost than if I had had the test on the NHS.
I wonder too if these forms of self testing are an ideal way for us to help maintain and monitor our own health surely they should be applauded.

Excellent Review by Neet
Product Rating
A very quick and easy way of getting results instantly. I am due a bowel screen test every two years which seems a long time from one year to the next, so this is a good way of keeping a check on yourself in between tests. Simple to perform with instant results. Thank you. (Posted on 27 November 2016)

Gives false results

Dear Sam
I am sorry you did not find the test useful. Please call me so I can help you further as test conditions do have to be followed for accuracy and a new test might be better for you.

Not good Review by Linda
Product Rating
Had two tests and on both occasions the test was inconclusive. I was refunded for both but all the comment was suggest you get the test from your own doctor. So all in all not that happy and unsure if I would use company for any other tests to be honest.

Dear Linda
I am sorry the two tests were inconclusive as you rightly say we have refunded you and recommend if you still have concerns you should visit your GP. We usually get great feedback for these test, but it obviously wasn't right for you.
Thank you for your review.

False Positive Result Review by HLR
Product Rating
Gave a false positive result. Went to the GP endured weeks of anguish & worry. Family worried sick.
Had to undergo painful bowel screening, investigation with CT scan & gas inflation.
Nothing showed up. Not even a polyp.
Test unworthy & discredited.

Dear HLR
Thank you for your feedback, and i am so pleased you are in the all-clear after your bowel health tests. I agree, it is easy to get a false positive and we try to highlight this as much as possible so that those who use this home bowel test are aware. A false positive can happen if you've eaten a rare steak, and only about one in three bowel tests that show positive actually have polyps in the colon. I am sorry this caused you to worry, but it is always advisable to test if there is blood in the faeces and check. I would also like to point out that these bowel health tests are currently free on the NHS for those aged over 60.
Thank you for your feedback it will help other people who buy this bowel cancer test kit to understand the test a little better.

I now test 6 monthly, might be a bit OTT, but puts my mind at rest. Review by Ray of Sunshine
Product Rating
I lost my Father to bowel cancer and whilst I might be over cautious I do like to monitor my health along with my GP. This test is easy to use, the instructions must be followed otherwise you could get a false positive result as some reviewers have mentioned here. I found that following the guidelines works fine for me (but I can confirm that by leaving it over the allotted/recommended time does give a false positive, so time yourself properly)

Product Questions

2 drops put into the test (at "S") on a flat surface. After a few minutes the white test area started going purple up to the "T" area. Looked like the "T" had a line in it. Nothing in the "C" area, no line & still white in colour. Is this a positive or invalid result?
