Bowel Cancer Awareness Month Screening

1 April 30 April

Bowel screening aims to detect signs of bowel cancer at an early stage, where there are no symptoms. Bowel cancer is also known as colon, rectal or colorectal cancer.

Around 2,600 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in Ireland every year. Bowel cancer is the second most common of all cancers in men and the third most common of all cancers in women in Ireland.

If bowel cancer is found early, it’s easier to treat and there’s a better chance of recovery.
