DH relaunch bowel cancer campaign

28th August 2012

The Department of Health relaunched its Be Clear on Cancer campaign targeting bowel cancer today.

Care Services Minister Paul Burstow said: "No one likes thinking about cancer, or talking about their poo. But the plain fact is no one dies of embarrassment, they can die of cancer if they don’t get an early diagnosis. If you show any of the key symptoms, tell your GP. It could save your life. Early diagnosis makes a huge difference to your chance of survival. That’s why we are building on the success of our recent national campaign which led to more people getting checked out by their GP."
