The Duckster says: 'If you have any of these symptoms get yourself down to the quack!'

The symptoms of bowel (colorectal) cancer can be:

  • Bleeding from your bottom and/or blood in your stools
  • A change in bowel habit lasting for 3 weeks or more especially to looser or runny stools
  • Unexplained weight loss, extreme tiredness for no obvious reason, a severe pain or lump in your tummy
