It’s ‘Bowel Cancer Awareness Month’ and Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, is supporting Bowel Cancer UK’s campaign to urge more people to take part in bowel cancer screening.
“More than 44 people die from bowel cancer every day in the UK, it’s the nation’s second biggest cancer killer; but it’s treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early.
“Bowel cancer screening can save lives but in some areas of the UK only a third of those who receive a test complete it.
“I would urge everyone in Ellesmere Port and Neston who is sent a bowel cancer screening test to use it. Taking part in screening is the best way to get diagnosed early. If you are over 60, take the test when you receive it in the post. If you are younger, remind the people over 60 in your life to take the test.
“Early diagnosis really can save lives!”
