Bowel Screening Awareness

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

Every 15 minutes someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer and it’s the UK’s second biggest cancer killer but it

shouldn’t be. It’s treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early. Nearly everyone survives bowel cancer if

diagnosed at the earliest stage however this drops significantly as the disease develops. Early diagnosis really

does save lives. Being aware of the key symptoms and visiting your GP if things don’t feel right can help

increase chances of an early diagnosis.

The symptoms of bowel cancer can include:

 Bleeding from your bottom and/or blood in your poo

 A persistent and unexplained change in bowel habit

 Unexplained weight loss

 Extreme tiredness for no obvious reason

 A pain or lump in your tummy

Most people with these symptoms don’t have bowel cancer. Other health problems can cause similar

symptoms. If you have one or more of these, or if things just don’t feel right, see your GP.
