The biggest misconception about Bowel Cancer – AGE!
More specifically that it’s an ‘old’ persons illness.
I went undiagnosed for 4 years based purely on my age. In Bowel Cancer terms I’m very young – nice to be young in some way – and was told many times I was too young to have Bowel Cancer. Since having cancer I have met a number of people who have been in their forties, thirties, even twenties.
Never let you age be the sole reason for sending you for further tests, it’s just not that straight forward!
