"Whilst I have a way to go before I can say I'm cancer free, I reckon things are looking pretty rosy."
Back in October 2014, I received what I now refer to as my "gift pack" for turning 50 from the Victorian Government.
I decided to visit my GP to discuss the kit in more detail. I had experienced intermittent rectal bleeding along with loose bowel movements so my GP organised a colonoscopy to determine the health of my bowel. During the procedure a low rectal polypoid was discovered and a subsequent biopsy confirmed a cancerous tumour.
