    Bowel cancer screening is offered every 2 years from age 60, & I personally think it's a really good thing, & am grateful for the opportunity to do a home test. I am therefore surprised at the cavalier comment another made, but can't see there was any intent to suggest you could just get one of these sent out to you when younger unless because of your Drs concerns. You take care, x

    @Username_removed I have lost alot of family members through diff cancers I have suffered for past 2 years with symptoms raised white blood cells on every blood test I have had also had inconclusive tummy biopsies etc so it was a shock when I got called into doctors the other day to get my latest blood results he says they are rubbish that was his words and my white blood cells keep rising and my esr levels whatever they are? So he rung the hospital and asked them to send me this test I'm scared but it's gotta be done and I'm only 40!!

    I'm not sure how messages sent to a mobile can be in anyway Scopes fault, it would suggest that numbers had been exchanged, never a good idea if i'm honest. I also read the other thread and saw nothing of concern.
    Cancer is the biggest killer in the UK and it stands to reason that we have all lost family and close friends to it.
    Anyway having had my say I'll back away from this thread now and wish the OP good luck

     I dont think anyone thinks your lying people do get test kits posted out to them without going to the dr 

    Think maybe you have taken something the wrong way

    @LisaThomas50 I did not request this kit the doc asked to see me about my symptoms etc which have been going on for a long time and he told me that he has concerns that's why he asked the hospital to send me 1 I already told you this a couple of hours ago when you msged me to my mobile number

    people do get test kits posted out to them without going to the dr
    Only those over 60 (tho this age will apparently lower to 56 this year) are invited to get a test: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/bowel-cancer-screening/

    It’s probably not a good idea to exchange mobile numbers to be fair, and I’m sure it’s against the community guidelines, so be careful. 

    ESR from memory is a inflammation measurement of some kind.

    ESR = erythrocyte (red blood cells) sedimentation rate....as Mark says, it's a measure that there's inflammation in the body, but it doesn't indicate where. I've previously had them done to rule out rheumatoid arthritis for example.
    I know you've had problems for some time @alex19, & in your case had a test sent out only at your Dr's request. Stay strong, & positive, xx
