For quite a long time, scientists have been encouraging people to get themselves diagnosed for cancer so that it could be cured timely. A recent research has found that patients diagnosed with bowel cancer at the time of screening are more likely to recover as compared to those who have already developed the symptoms.
For the research, the scientists looked at the bowel cancer cases which were diagnosed in 2007 and 2010, in the regions of north-east England. During the research, it was found that patients who were tested for blood in the stool recovered from the cancer quite early as compared to those who didn't participated in the screening.
The findings of the scientists have been published in the British Journal of Cancer. The lead author of the research, Dr. Michael Gill said, ".our research shows that the proportion of bowel cancers detected through screening has improved with the roll-out of national screening".
The findings of the research have been acknowledged by charity Beating Bowel Cancer. It is hoped that people would take serious note of the findings and would participate in the national screening program.
