Bowel Cancer Symptoms

With special mention of  Bowel Cancer Research

 

One of the difficulties with bowel cancer is that often there are no symptoms until quite late. However, if you have bleeding from the bottom or a change in bowel habits for several weeks it is always wise to visit your GP. Other symptoms can be severe abdominal pain or a lump in the abdomen and acute tiredness or weight loss. All of these symptoms can be signs of other less severe conditions, for example, bleeding from the bottom might indicate haemorrhoids, but it’s vital to get checked out or  Test yourself at home as if it’s found early there is a good chance of a cure.
