Cancer screening saves lives

Bowel cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in Australia. Screening is the most effective way to detect early signs of this cancer. 

Cancer Council’s 2019 bowel screening campaign, funded by the Australian Government, will prevent 860 bowel cancer cases, saving 470 lives over the next 50 years.
