Bowel cancer: You’re never too young
important – it’s because of this that I’m here today.
■ Bleeding from the bowel
■ Change in bowel habit: going to the toilet more often, increased constipation, looser stools for several weeks, feeling that the bowel is not empty after going to the toilet
■ Fatigue, tiredness, feeling weak or breathless, anaemia
■ Weight loss
■ Any lumps or mass in the abdomen.
Symptoms may come and go, which can provide false reassurance.

All the people in the Never Too Young campaign were diagnosed with bowel cancer in their 20s and 30s.
