Common symptoms of bowel cancer can include:
- Blood in your poo or on the toilet paper,
- A sudden change in bowel habits (e.g: diarrhoea or constipation),
- General discomfort in your abdomen (eg: bloating, pain or cramps),
- The feeling of constant weakness or tiredness.
If you experience these symptoms you should consult a doctor who may ask you to take a 'Faecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT)' (FOBT involves sending two separate samples of poo for testing) or a 'colonoscopy' (involves using an internal camera to examine the bowel).
