Bowel Cancer Screening

What is the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program?

The National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) aims to reduce morbidity and mortality from bowel cancer by screening the eligible target population for early detection or prevention of the disease.

Eligible Australians (those aged 50–74) are sent a free screening kit (immunochemical faecal occult blood test or iFOBT) and are invited to screen every 2 years.

To participate, people complete the screening test and post it to the pathology laboratory for analysis.
