Home bowel cancer screening

The benefits of self-testing for bowel cancer

measure is an easy-to-use bowel cancer test. Our kit enables you to carry out a medical quality screening check in the privacy of your own home.

The measure test is fast, hygienic and discreet and it works by detecting blood in stool samples. It provides accurate results that give you a greater understanding of your gastrointestinal health.

Why self-test?

The good news is that bowel cancer (colorectal cancer) is one of the easiest cancers to treat when caught early. Unfortunately, the condition is difficult to detect in the early stages because its symptoms are not always obvious.

Bowel cancer is increasingly common in younger people and one in six cases are diagnosed before the age of 60. However, in England and Wales only people over 60 are offered screening. measure is the no-fuss way to do a screening test at home.
