Update of surveillance guidance for people who have a higher risk of bowel cancer

The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) have updated their guidance for endoscopy services during the COVID-19 pandemic for people who have a higher risk of bowel cancer.

This update of the existing guidelines, which were first published in January this year, is for people who have surveillance or 'check up' colonoscopies because of their increased risk of bowel cancer. People who have a higher risk include those who have a genetic condition such as Lynch syndrome, a strong family history of the disease, some people with inflammatory bowel disease and those who have recently finished treatment for bowel cancer.
