Every Australian aged 50 or over will receive regular bowel screening kits to test for cancer and other complications, but there are now calls to make these tests available to younger people, as it turns out this isn't a condition that only affects older generations. A growing number of women especially - including those in their 20's and 30's - are developing bowel cancer, but often don't realise until it is too late as we still wrongly think of this as an 'older person's disease'. The Quicky speaks to two women who were diagnosed with bowel cancer in their 30's and 40's, and a specialist surgeon to find out who is at risk of bowel cancer, what symptoms to look out for, and why it seems to be increasingly common.
