Test could prove life saving

CANCER Australia CEO Dr Helen Zorbas has encouraged Bundaberg residents to get checked up as part of the national bowel cancer screening program.

Bowel cancer is the second most common cancer diagnosed in Australia in both men and women, with an estimated 16,000 Australians to be diagnosed this year.

Ms Zorbas said as the Australian population grows and ages, the incidence of bowel cancer is projected to increase.

In 2020, it is estimated 20,000 Australians will be diagnosed with bowel cancer.

"Bowel cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in Australia, with more than 4000 Australians losing their lives to this disease each year," Dr Zorbas said.
