Anyone can get bowel cancer, at any age. Every year, over 3,000 New Zealanders are diagnosed with it, and 1,200 people die of it, including young people.
What’s more, the signs of bowel cancer can come and go, so if you have any symptoms including: bleeding from the bowel, changes in bowel motions, anaemia, abdominal pain or lumps, unexplained fatigue or weight loss; see your GP straight away.
You’re never too young to get checked. #getchecked #beatbowelcancer
