There are a number of factors that may result in seeking medical advice. The first step is to obtain a referral from your GP in order to see a gastroenterologist for whatever the related issue is.
The Australian government supports bowel cancer screening. A bowel preparation kit is sent to every person once they reach the age of 50. Dr. Yoganthan believes this is a valuable tool in order to prevent the risk of bowel cancer, one of the biggest killers in Australia. If you have not yet received a kit, you can find them at your nearest pharmacy.
If you have a family history of bowel cancer, are over the age of 50, or have any symptoms you are concerned about then a consultation visit may be in your best interest. Please consult your GP for a referral first.
