Our website was created by Lynn Faulds Wood (who survived advanced bowel cancer when presenter of BBC Watchdog) and Mike Thompson, former President of the Association of Coloproctology (bowel specialists) of Great Britain and Ireland.
The charity behind it – Lynn’s Bowel Cancer Campaign – is purely voluntary with no staff. Lynn works for no payment. She has been involved in and helped to fund great research over the last 20 years.
We are updating the website – bear with us – contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Millions of us have bowel symptoms every year – they are one of the biggest reasons for seeing our GPs. But are yours important or will they go away without medical help? Try our step by step guide for ways to treat your symptoms to find out if they are serious or not.
Takes just a few minutes in the privacy of your own home - gives advice tailored to you and a print out to take if it recommends that you see your GP.
Many people with key symptoms which turn out to be bowel cancer could be diagnosed more quickly and more cheaply if they were given the best test. Our new research shows which symptoms should be diagnosed by which test – flexible sigmoidoscopy? Colonoscopy? Barium enema? CT scans? MRI? etc
Five-minute short colonoscopy test which can find most bowel cancers with the key symptoms – also great for screening from 55.
