I'm gutsy, let's create my fundraising page!
At Bowel & Cancer Research we understand that it can take a lot of courage to check out symptoms that may indicate bowel cancer. People put off going to the GP not only because of a possible cancer diagnosis but also because of the current tests.
In fact in a recent survey commissioned by us nearly half of respondents would not go to their GP with bowel problems.
The research revealed that people aged 25-34 are least likely to consult their doctor if they suspect they have a bowel problem as 77 per cent say their GP would not be their first port of call. 48 per cent of people aged 18-24 would Google to find out what was wrong with them, which is the case for a quarter of all adults surveyed.
Embarrassment is still a prominent barrier to people not wanting to discuss their bowel problems, as more than a third of people said they find it “embarrassing” to talk about bowel problems in the first place. Bowel issues are the second most embarrassing subject for people to talk about, after sex.
Let's be clear - early diagnosis saves lives: When caught at Stage I bowel cancer survival is 90% at Stage IV it is 6%.
We fund research to make diagnostics less invasive and embarrassing and treatments kinder. Raise money for research with a gutsy challenge this Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and you will be helping us too.
Any questions or ideas, contact our fundraising team.
The symptoms listed below can indicate a number of bowel issues, and do not necessarily mean bowel cancer. However, you should never ignore the following and should see your GP if these symptoms persist.
