Bowel cancer signs: The 'tell-tale' sign on your skin 'you should speak to your doctor'


Bowel Cancer UK notes that over 42,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in the UK.

It says that one in 15 men and one in 18 women will be diagnosed with bowel cancer during their lifetime.

The NHS explains: “When you first see a GP, they’ll ask about your symptoms and whether you have a family history of bowel cancer.” According to the health body, your GP may carry out a number of tests.

“They’ll usually carry out a simple examination of your bottom, known as a digital rectal examination (DRE), and examine your tummy (abdomen).”
