Bowel Cancer Awareness Month – Day 13

Cancer & Me

Day 13 – Take Responsibility for Your Own Health

If you are unhappy with the direction your GP is taking, do not be nervous to ask for a second opinion or to push for a referral.

It is what doctors are there for… to assist you with your health.

Unfortunately things do occasionally get overlooked or misdiagnosed, or a certain doctor may have fixed ideas of a Bowel Cancer patient which they don’t believe you fit into.

That is why it is important that you take responsibility for your own health.  That means know your own body, know when something is wrong and have the confidence to make sure someone does something about it!
