Bowel cancer happens when the cells in your bowel multiply and attack the surrounding tissue it can then spread to other areas of the body.
Another name for it is: Colen cancer.
Most people can have a really good chance of recovery if caught early but unfortunatly only 9% are caught at the early stage!
Signs to look out for:
- A pain or lump in your stomach
- Feeling more tired than normal
- Losing weight for no obvious reason
- Hving blood in your poo for the last 3 weeks
These symptoms do not mean you have Bowel cancer but it is still best to be seen as it could still be the sign of another problem.
All i can say is you have nothing to lose but Everything to gain! so if you spot any of these do get checked.
