1. Test for Blood in Stool - FIT test £29.99
From only £29.99 these tests are cost-effective if you are concerned about bowel cancer and polyps? This '2 in 1' test is possibly the best, affordable non-invasive screening test. It is our most effective test and more specific than a test for blood in stool on its own.
M2-PK enzyme is present in cells of tumours and polyps

This test detects if the enzyme is present in excess in your stool sample
This test also detects the presence of tiny amounts of blood in the stool as well so if there is a bleeding or non-bleeding tumour or polyp present this test has a good chance of identifying it. We provide a small sample pot for each test and you post them back to us for testing. Very soon you will know if you are at increased risk. The test will detect up to 91% of bowel cancers and up to 60% of bowel polyps.
Highly effective test that detects excess M2-PK in the stool. It can detect non-bleeding polyps and tumours. Blood in the stool is not detected by this test so false positive tests due to bleeding haemorrhoids do not occur with this test. M2-pyruvate kinase is an enzyme present in large amounts in polyps and bowel cancer cells but normal cells only contain small amounts. A high level of M2-PK is a risk factor for pre-cancerous bowel polyps and bowel cancer. A small stool sample is all that is required for testing.
This is a basic but effective test if repeated regularly. It detects tiny amounts of blood in the stool from polyps or tumours if they are bleeding. Non-bleeding tumours and polyps will not be detected. This test can be falsely positive due to bleeding haemorrhoids and other conditions that cause bleeding. Nevertheless this test is superior to the current screening test provided by NHS England because this test is immunological (faecal immunochemical test - FIT test), more sensitive (detects more disease) and is less likely to be falsely positive (more specific).
The test cost includes everything you need to take the test, post and packing is included. Return your sample to in pre-paid mailer for testing. There are no hidden costs.
