Just over a year ago I went to doctor with altered bowel habits. Saw doctor at The Townsville Hospital six months later and told I needed a colonoscopy. Returned a positive bowel cancer screen three months later. Despite ongoing pain and bleeding I had not been seen by anyone, six months on and so had a colonoscopy done privately. Two malignant tumors have been discovered. My question is why are you promoting bowel screening tests when you do not have the resources to cope with the present demand?
