Detecting bowel cancer early saves lives


Public Health Agency

Type: Report
Region: Republic of Ireland
Northern Ireland

The Public Health Agency (PHA) is using Bowel Cancer Awareness Month this month to encourage those eligible to use the free home bowel screening kits, and to raise awareness of the early signs and symptoms of the disease. Bowel cancer is one of the most common cancers in Northern Ireland and over 400 people die from the disease each year. However, the good news is that early detection can make a real difference as to whether someone with bowel cancer survives.
