Did you know that 12 million people suffer from a stroke every year, with a staggering half of them succumbing to its effects?

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month 2024

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

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

πŸ” Knowing the symptoms is crucial – it could literally save your life.

❗ So, what are the red flags? Keep an eye out for:

1️⃣ Bleeding from your bottom or blood in your poo

2️⃣ Changes in bowel habits

3️⃣ Unexplained weight loss

4️⃣ Extreme fatigue

5️⃣ Tummy pain or lump

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

🧠 Let’s get Bowel Smart! 1 in 3 people can’t name any symptoms of bowel cancer – together, we can change that.
