What does ColoAlert® test for?
Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) detects hidden blood in the stool which may indicate bowel cancer and can also be from more benign causes like Piles
Mutated KRAS gene in the stool that is found in Bowel cancer and is related to poor survival and increased tumour aggressiveness
Mutated BRAF gene in the stool that is found in Bowel cancer and is related to poor survival
- Stool Sample
Accuracy: ColoAlert is Highly Accurate
- Sensitivity >90%
- Specificity >95%
Laboratory processing time: 9 days

Professional, simple, re-assurance.
I bought ColoAlert Plus. From the beginning, the team at mecheck were incredibly helpful and re-assuring, and handled extremely professionally something which otherwise can feel very personal, and (to be honest) a little embarassing. The kit was well made, easy to use with clear instructions, and the courier return service was smooth and fast.

Why does Bowel Cancer screening concern me?
Big C: 4th Biggest Cancer in the UK (42000 new cases/year)
Serious: 2nd Biggest cause of death in the UK (16300 deaths/year)
Not treated seriously: uptake of screening is poor leading to more late diagnosis and poor prognosis
Under 50s: 10% colorectal cancer cases are diagnosed in under 50s** and 73% diagnosed at later stage** (under 50s)"The number of young adults with bowel cancer is rising at an alarming rate in England at an exponential increase in the incidence of bowel cancer among adults under 50" (March 2020, in the British Journal of Surgery BJS )Age has always been a major risk factor for bowel cancer, with the majority of cases being diagnosed in patients over 60 and therefore bowel cancer screening has focused on older age groups.The study findings are in agreement with other research carried out in Europe and the US in the recent past, which indicates a rapid rise in the incidence of this cancer in young adults
Too Late: "Bowel Cancer 5 year Survival rates are 95% if diagnosed at Early Stage and only 5% at Late Stage" (Cancer Research UK)"The cancers where the UK has the lowest 5-year survival rates of the 7 countries are stomach, colon, rectal, pancreas and lung cancer"(NHS)
What are the symptoms of Bowel Cancer?
Bowel cancer may have no symptoms during the early stages of the disease but there may be some early warning signs. The symptoms of Bowel cancer may not develop until the disease has progressed into stage II or beyond***
Early warning signs of colorectal cancer
Most cancers in the colon or rectum develop from polyps, so screening to find and remove them when they first form helps prevent them from growing into cancers.
Common early warning signs of Bowel cancer include:
Rectal bleeding, either bright or dark red in color
Tenesmus, which is the feeling that you have to empty your bowel but nothing passes
Anemia caused by iron deficiency
Persistent abdominal pain
Unexplained weight loss
Although these symptoms may be caused by other, less serious conditions, such as hemorrhoids, ulcers and Crohn's disease, they should be discussed with a GP. Blood in the stool, even if it only appears intermittently, should never be ignored.
What tests are available?
NHS Bowel Cancer screening tests starts at 55+ with a colonoscopy and FIT test(Test for blood in the stools),
Several tests may be used to diagnose Bowel cancer, these include:-
Colonoscopy: Direct viewing with video camera through the rectum. Needs bowel prep and day case and/or biopsies taken
CT colonoscopy: Non invasive colonoscopy but involves radiation and bowel prep
FIT stool test: To detect blood present in Bowel Cancer but may be present in benign conditions(Piles). Does not detect mutated DNA. A fraction the cost of Colonoscopy.
sDNA stool test To detect mutated KRAS/BRAF genes in stools found in Bowel Cancer. Its useful when Bowel cancer is found early and/or not bleeding yet. A fraction the cost of Colonoscopy.
