We have launched our ‘Never Too young’ campaign to raise awareness of bowel cancer in patients under the age of 50. Every year 2,100 younger people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in the UK, of which 21 are in their teens. Currently too many are being diagnosed late when treatment is harder and too many lives are needlessly being lost from this treatable disease.
