Signs and Symptoms

It’s important we all know the main signs and symptoms of bowel cancer.

We all have problems with our insides every now and again and there is usually nothing to worry about.

It’s best to be safe, so if you have any of the following for 3 weeks or more check it out with your GP.

  • Changes in your toilet habits, going to the toilet more often, or having diarrhoea or constipation.
  • Bleeding from your bottom with no obvious reasons.
  • A pain or a lump in your tummy or uncomfortable sensations.

Good News! If it's caught early 93 percent of people will survive.
