People should increase awareness during Bowel Cancer Awareness Month
A charity has stated that this is the bowel cancer awareness month and people must make full use of it to make themselves aware of the symptoms of the disease.
The charity Beating Bowel Cancer stated that several lives can be saved if people are aware of the symptoms of bowel cancer and home care can be reduced if this is done.
The charity added that 29 per cent women are not aware of the symptoms and 52 per cent of men are also unaware. This research was carried out to mark Bowel Cancer Awareness month.
When it came to people in Britain knowing the symptoms of the disease, less than a third of people were able to name just two or more of them.
Knowledge about bowel cancer symptoms was seen among people in the South West and East of England.
UK’s second biggest cancer killer according to Mark Flannagan, chief executive of Beating Bowel Cancer, is bowel cancer.
“Bowel cancer claims a life every 30 minutes in the UK. However, our research shows that a shocking four in ten people claim not to know any of the symptoms,” he said.
