Bowel Cancer Awareness Month
And this year, the message is simple — saving lives through early detection.
Bowel cancer is the second most common type of newly diagnosed cancer in Australia affecting both men and women almost equally and is Australia’s second biggest cancer killer after lung cancer.
During the early stages of bowel cancer, patients may have no symptoms but almost 90 per cent of bowel cancer cases can be treated successfully when detected early, making screening so important.
Get tested by using a Bowelscan kit, available at www.letsbeatbowelcancer.com.au/home/ order-a-test/.
