Thank you for your post and questions.
It is very true that we all need to start being aware of symptoms to look out for, risk factors and prevention when it comes to bowel cancer awareness and looking after our health.
It is difficult to understand how someone so young can develop such a disease, but unfortunately bowel cancer is increasingly affecting all age groups, including younger people.
For further information on bowel cancer risk factors and prevention, please have a read through the information of the following pages on the Bowel Cancer Australia website -
· Bowel Cancer: Prevention· Bowel Cancer: Risk Pathway· Bowel Cancer : Screening Pathway
You may also be interested in the various publications we have available, in particular the Bowel Cancer: Prevent & Detect – Your Guide and Bowel Cancer: Screening – Your Choices booklets.
We hope this information helps you, and also all those reading this forum and discussion, and that everyone spreads the word to their family/friends. Awareness of all of these areas is so important, because if bowel cancer is detected early enough, it could just save your/their life.
