I was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer in July 2015 about one month after my 28th birthday. My gastroenterologist found the tumour by accident whilst I was having a colonoscopy to investigate an unrelated issue, ulcerative colitis – the cancer was stage 3.

A good news story, emphasising the importance of early detection of bowel cancer.

A blood test which detects reliable biomarkers for early-stage diagnosis of bowel cancer is something Subroto B. Chatterjee, M.S., M.Sc., Ph.D., a professor of paediatrics and a specialist in vascular biology, believes would be welcome by patients and clinicians alike.

Screening using a faecal immunochemical test (FIT) can detect blood in a person's faeces that is invisible to the human eye, but a bowel cancer diagnosis still requires a colonoscopy to determine the cause of the bleeding.

Dr Chatterjee and his team at John Hopkins in the United States have discovered a protein which could serve as a marker for the early detection of bowel cancers, that could be detected via a blood test.
