New test for bowel cancer sufferers

Bosses at Peterborough City Hospital say they`re reviewing the idea of testing people under 50 diagnosed with bowel cancer for Lynch Syndrome.

The condition is a genetic one that increases the risk of developing the disease by 80%.

Officials say the test isn`t done automatically at the moment but they`ll consider it.
