Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

17/03/2017

April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of bowel cancer and this year is focusing on bowel cancer screening!!
 
Bowel cancer screening saves lives but at the moment in some areas of the UK only a third of those who receive a test in the post complete it. Thousands of people are missing out on the best way to detect bowel cancer early when it is easier to treat and there is the greatest chance of survival.
 
We can all raise awareness of bowel cancer screening this Bowel Cancer Awareness Month.
  • Over 60? (or in Scotland and over 50?), take the test when you receive it in the post.
  • If you are younger, tell the people over 60 (or over 50 in Scotland) in your life, to take the test.
