Re: Bowel Cancer test

Hi Tony , The usual progression is to have a colonoscopy. It involves a good clean out and a flexible camera inspection of your large bowel. The scope has tools and any polyps or suspicious areas can be biopsied.Good luck with the tests ,hope it's all benign or early stages. Ron.
