I'm just wondering about youngsters with bowel cancer - What were your symptoms? How were you diagnosed? Did you have a long journey, with false reassurance, prior to diagnosis?
I am 30. I am pretty sure I have bowel cancer. I have had a change in bowel habit for around a year - going more often usually, sometimes constipated, sometimes blood, lots of bloating and a right sided mass that has been constant for the past 6 weeks. I also have pain in my spine when it is touched.
I have seen 2 GPs and been told I have IBS.
Tomorrow I am seeing a colorectal surgeon privately.
Tonight j cannot sleep, and was wondering about your journeys.
Thanks for for listening X
