Expatriate healthcare insurance customers may wish to undergo a bowel screening, following advice from one expert.
Deborah Gilbert, head of development at Bowel and Cancer Research, said the reluctance for this examination may be due to males having a "fatalistic, tempting fate attitude".
Furthermore, it requires "the manual collection of a sample" of the participant's stool, which many individuals deem to be distasteful, she added.
The expert declared that the Faecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) has a compliance rate of around 50 per cent and urged more people to undergo the procedure, asserting that "it could save their life".
Ms Gilbert noted that smoking, alcohol intake, a lack of exercise or fibre and heavy consumption of processed or red meats are "risk factors associated with bowel cancer".
In some countries, the FOBT can be submitted through the post, with members of the public provided with a testing kit they can use at home.
