Bowel Cancer Awareness Raising Event - Saturday 6th April Hollingbury ASDA- 10am to 4pm

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK.–  come and meet a team of Macmillan and Albion in the Community volunteers, Bowel Screening experts, Colorectal Nurse specialists and bowel cancer patients. We hope to make people more aware of the signs and symptoms of Bowel cancer; the importance of early detection and the NHS Bowel Screening Service and to signpost where people might find information and assistance.

Speak to your GP if you notice any of these changes:

  • Blood in your poo.
  • looser poo or a persistant change in bowel habit.
  • a feeling that you haven't emptied your bowel properly after a poo.
  • a pain or lump in your tummy.
  • weight loss for no obvious reason.
