Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

June 5, 2024 by Hamilton Medical

June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month – Bowel Cancer Australia’s signature event to raise awareness of Australia’s second deadliest cancer and funds for the leading community-funded charity dedicated to prevention, early diagnosis, research, quality treatment and care, so everyone affected by bowel cancer can live their best life.

Bowel cancer claims the lives of 103 Australians every week (5,354 people a year) – but it’s one of the most treatable types of cancer when detected early.

While the risk of bowel cancer increases significantly with age, the disease doesn’t discriminate, affecting people of all ages.

300 Australians will be diagnosed with bowel cancer this week (15,610 people a year).
