Home Faecal Occult Blood test for Bowel and Colon Cancer  

Test for signs of Bowel and Colon Cancer in just 5 minutes with our accurate, easy to use home test kit!

Self-Sure™ is a leading Bowel Cancer and Colon Cancer test designed to detect the presence of Faecal Occult Blood (FOB) in stool specimens, which are invisible to the naked eye. Self-SureTM is an advanced immunological type of FOB test that is very sensitive and detects very low levels of human blood in stools. The test is also very accurate as it only detects blood of human origin and unlike some tests is not influenced by the type of food you have eaten.

Self-Sure™ is designed to be both very easy to perform and hygienic. The unique two part design of the stool sample and test sections of the Self-Sure™ kit are both encapsulated in plastic and simply screw together to perform the test making it clean, hygienic and easy to use. The test results are shown in just 5 minutes and are very simple to interpret.

Self-Sure™ is designed as a screening test for bowel and colon cancer and positive results should be followed by additional tests to determine the exact cause of the bleeding, which your doctor can advise you about.

The presence of occult blood in stools is an indicator of a number of potential gastrointestinal disorders, including bowel and colorectal cancer and is used as a diagnostic marker by the NHS Bowel Cancer Test programme. About 1 in 20 people in the UK will develop bowel cancer during their lifetime. It is the third most common cancer in the UK with around 37,000 people diagnosed with the condition each year, according to Cancer Research UK.

Regular screening is important to detect bowel and colon cancer at an early stage in people with no symptoms and is recommended as part of your on-going health screening plan.
