Bowel cancer continues to be the second most common type of newly diagnosed cancer in Australia.

Once referred to as an ‘old man’s disease’, it is now understood that bowel cancer affects men (55%) and women (45%) and is increasingly common among people under the age of 50.

What isn’t understood is what's been causing the increase in frequency of early-onset bowel cancer over the past two decades, not just in Australia but in countries around the world.

According to a recent study published in Digestive and Liver Disease, the global incidence of early-onset bowel cancer is projected to continue rising by as much as 90% by 2030.

I had been doing the Colovantage test for about 7 years with the result coming back each year as negative until late 2015 when the result came back positive.
