I was 37 when I was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2015.

My mum had bowel cancer at 57.

I recall telling her off because she had bleeding for quite a while.

I was feeling fine, but there was quite a bit of blood appearing in my stool - I just put it down to haemorrhoids.

My partner kept telling me to see the doctor, but of course, I did the male thing and ignored her pleas.

After experiencing a bowel motion consisting only of blood, I finally went to the GP.
