About our colon cancer screening

Colon cancer, or bowel cancer, is one of the most common types in the UK, although the majority of cases are preventable. Our colon health check includes a CT scan of your bowel, known as a virtual colonoscopy, designed to check for polyps (small growths on the inner lining of the colon), and other signs of abnormalities or cancer.

If the CT scan detects any significant polyps or cancers, we'll discuss the next steps with you. This may significantly reduce the chance of bowel cancer developing and may even be able to be cured.

What do ‘false’ results mean?

In some case, results can be a ‘false positive’ or a ‘false negative’. A false positive can mean you’re called back for further tests when you’re then found not to have a cancer. A false negative means that you have a cancer but your screening result came back as normal.

These results are rare but it’s still stressful and upsetting. Whatever your result, it is important to report to a doctor any new symptoms you may develop after the test.
