    Colonoscopy
    Following a FIT test that indicated blood I contacted Dr. Campbell who very quickly organised a colonoscopy during which some polyps were removed. One of these contained some cancer, a signoidoscopy swiftly followed and showed that the cancer was not present in the bowel wall and was entirely contained in the removed polyp. So, I had a compltet all clear. Before the FIT test I had no symptoms whatsoever, no bleeding, no weight loss, no pain. I believe that without the FIT test and Dr. Compbell's efficient actions that within 3 - 6 months the cancer would have spread and been considerably more serious. I feel lucky and grateful.
