Early diagnosis and treatment of bowel cancer offers the best chance of a successful recovery. At the very least, the symptoms will be less severe and, therefore generally easier to treat.

It is common though for embarrassment to get in the way of seeking medical advice for bowel problems until the symptoms worsen. By this point, whatever is causing the problem can be more difficult to treat and, in the case of serious conditions the chances of recovering completely can be reduced.

While this discomfort is natural and understandable, it is reassuring to know that with the right support from specialist doctors, you can lessen or even alleviate your symptoms.

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK and the second biggest cancer killer. Although most new cases are diagnosed in those over 50, it can affect anyone of any age.

Bowel cancer is highly treatable and curable when diagnosed early so seeking medical advice on any symptoms is essential. However, if bowel cancer is advanced there are still treatment options that can prolong and improve quality of life and to help you remain active for as long as possible. Professor Jamie Murphy specialises in the management of locally advanced colorectal cancer.

  • Detect any issues early, so you stand the best chance of successful treatment
