GP or nurse may be able to reassure you if you have ques­tions, or you may find it help­ful to talk to a trained coun­sel­lor, psy­chol­o­gist or spe­cial­ist tele­phone helpline op­er­a­tor.

Your GP surgery will have in­for­ma­tion on these and can re­fer you di­rectly to some ser­vices.

Some peo­ple find it help­ful to talk to oth­ers with bowel can­cer at a lo­cal sup­port group or through an in­ter­net chat room.

Beat­ing Bowel Can­cer of­fers sup­port ser­vices to peo­ple with bowel can­cer. They run a nurse ad­vi­sory line on 08450 719 301 or 020 8973 0011 avail­able 9am to 5.30pm Mon­day to Thurs­day, and 9am to 4pm on Fri­days. You can also email a nurse at nurse@ beat­ing­bow­el­cancer.org

The or­gan­i­sa­tion also runs a na­tional pa­tient-to-pa­tient net­work called Bowel Can­cer Voices for peo­ple af­fected by bowel can­cer and their rel­a­tives.
