Beating Bowel Cancer

Harlequin House 7 High Street Teddington, United Kingdom TW11 8EE

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK today, affecting around 1 in 19 women and 1 in 14 men.

Survival rates for bowel cancer are lower in the UK than in many other European countries and there is variation in the quality of care, depending on where you’re treated. Positive improvements are happening all the time in bowel cancer diagnosis, treatment and care. But we need to do better. Bowel cancer can be beaten – if we act to diagnose more people early and we deliver the best possible care and treatment.

We need to make sure bowel cancer is diagnosed earlier. When diagnosed at stage 1, more than nine out of ten (97%) people survive for five years or more. At stage 4, this drops to less than one in ten (7%).

As well as improving survival rates, we need better support for people with bowel cancer before, during and after treatment. It’s not just about how long people live but how well they live, including at the end of their lives.

We have an opportunity to make bowel cancer a rare cancer killer, with more lives saved, and ensure better care for every bowel cancer patient. To make this a reality we need work together. The NHS, government, doctors, nurses and health professionals, charities, scientists, researchers, and the public, can all join together to beat bowel cancer.
