Free bowel cancer awareness talks
Bowel cancer is currently the third most common cancer in Scotland and the second biggest cancer killer. Almost 3,800 people in Scotland are diagnosed with bowel cancer each year, and nearly 1,700 people die annually from the disease.
However, it doesn’t have to be this way, as bowel cancer is treatable and curable, especially when caught early. That’s why Bowel Cancer UK is dedicated to raising awareness through its volunteer-led awareness programme.
What will be in the talk?
Volunteers will deliver a 30-minute virtual presentation and highlight the following key awareness messages:
Signs and symptoms – learn the most common symptoms of bowel cancer
Risks – gain an awareness of the risk factors associated with bowel cancer
Bowel Screening – learn about the NHS bowel screening programme and the importance of taking part
The volunteers will also be happy to answer any questions you might have. Very often, they have had personal experience of bowel cancer, and therefore have a great deal of knowledge and wisdom to share.
