A guy I worked with took the test when it came through on his 50th which turned out to be positive though thankfully he's ok now. Another guy from work died earlier this year at 53. It wasn't actually the bowel cancer that killed him but pneumonia caused by a weakened immune system. These are both hard boys, shop floor steelworkers and not overweight or unfit but it goes to show anyone can fall victim to this.It's up to you whether you take it seriously or not. I was at the funeral of a mate about 2 months ago who thought it was all a bit of joke too and never did the test. His bowel cancer was stage 4 before it was diagnosed.
