Bowel (colorectal) cancer

In this section you can find out about experiences of bowel cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film.

Our researchers initially travelled all around the UK to talk to 39 people in their own homes. Analysis of 2 new interviews was added in 2011 and 2016 to help keep the site up to date. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, surgery and breaking the news of their diagnosis.

We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
