A Bowel Cancer Diagnosis
There's no denying it, for even the most positive of people, being diagnosed with cancer will come as a terrible shock. Many bowel cancer patients describe everything being 'a bit of a blur' after they are told.
If possible, it is important not to make too many decisions about what happens next, in your initial diagnosis session. First, you'll need to let the news sink in, and seek support from friends and family.
Bowel Cancer Australia's nurses are on hand to offer support and answer your questions and concerns. Please call the Bowel Cancer Australia Helpline on 1800 555 494.
