birthday boy

Had a big birthday last Sunday. I'm a bit over weight, like the odd cigar and don't get enough exercise apart from running round like a loony at work. So I'm quite happy with my lot, until I got an invitation for bowl cancer screening through the post 5 days into my 60th year. They obviously know something I don't, so I'll say goodbye to you all now as I going to snuff it some time soon and I may not get the chance to wish you all farewell!

Yes. It is quite disconcerting to get that bowel cancer kit through the post. Though it apparently saves a lot of lives.

Re: birthday boy

As soon as you reach 60 you show up on their radar, the test is every two years I've had two.

Not nice this end but imagine the poor lab technician opening the envelope and rooting through its contents... [Shock.png]

Re: birthday boy

Yes i do them and so far touch wood the tests have been OK, i recently found a small lump in one of my testcals (Men should check themsleves on a regular basis) and went to the doctors and also had the scans a bit like pregnant women have you know the ultra sound, anyway tests came back negative so all OK do not be afraid just because you are a man of having any type of tests done it may just save your life.
