Lower the age of Bowel Cancer screening to 30

Petition Details

I want the Bowel screening (simple stool sample) age lowered to 30.

Additional Information

As more young people are being diagnosed with this 'over 50s' cancer and more lives could be saved if checked and diagnosed earlier.

After being diagnosed with Bowel Cancer at the age of 31. I took to social media only to realise there are quite a lot of people in their 30s going through the same thing.

I believe the screening age should be lowered to give others the chance of early diagnosis, and the Government should fund this change as a priority.
