GI cancer, a pain in the bum.

Congratulations to the Ministry of Health for starting the National Bowel Screening Programme. Watch the latest Sunday programme here. The first screening programme for men and women. It is for ages 60 to 74 years. Just over 300 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer between the ages of 50 and 59 years. So keep aware of those symptoms such as bleeding from the bowel, unexplained weight loss and anaemia. Demand a colonoscopy if these occur!
