Signs & Symptoms
Possible signs of bowel cancer include a change in bowel habit or blood in the bowel movement.
Don't delay in talking to your GP is you are experiencing symptoms for two weeks or more, because when diagnosed early 90 percent of cases can be successfully treated.
Not everyone experiences symptoms, particularly in the early stages of bowel cancer.
Changes can also be due to other medical conditions, some foods or medicines.
Blood in the stool or rectal bleeding should never be ignored.
