June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is an annual initiative of Bowel Cancer Australia running throughout the month of June (1-30 June), to raise awareness of Australia’s second deadliest cancer.
 
Bowel cancer claims the lives of over 80 Australians every week.
 
Bowel Cancer Awareness Month has a positive message – saving lives through early detection – as bowel cancer is one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early.
 
There are some great patient resources on the Bowel Cancer Australia Website, click here to access free patient resources. 
 
If you have any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to ask one of the Doctors working at the Stirk Medical Group.
