CancerHelp UK is a free information service about cancer and cancer care for people with cancer and their families. This section of CancerHelp UK tells you about bowel cancer (colorectal cancer). It includes information about causes and symptoms of bowel cancer, tests and treatment, living with bowel cancer, and current research.
Around six young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK. They need expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word ‘cancer.’ We’re the only charity dedicated to making this happen. We bring young people together so they can be treated together, by teenage cancer experts, in the best place for them.
