Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month 2024

๐Ÿšจ Every 30 minutes, someone in the UK loses their life to bowel cancer. ๐Ÿ˜ข It’s the second biggest cancer killer, but here’s the thing: it doesn’t have to be. ๐Ÿ›‘ Bowel cancer is treatable and curable, especially when caught early.

๐Ÿ” Knowing the symptoms is crucial โ€“ it could literally save your life.

โ— So, what are the red flags? Keep an eye out for:

1๏ธโƒฃ Bleeding from your bottom or blood in your poo

2๏ธโƒฃ Changes in bowel habits

3๏ธโƒฃ Unexplained weight loss

4๏ธโƒฃ Extreme fatigue

5๏ธโƒฃ Tummy pain or lump

๐Ÿฉบ Don’t ignore these signs! While they might not always mean cancer, it’s vital to get them checked out by your GP ASAP.

๐Ÿง  Let’s get Bowel Smart! 1 in 3 people can’t name any symptoms of bowel cancer โ€“ together, we can change that.
