One charity - Bowel Cancer UK is leading change for younger bowel cancer patients with the 'Never too Young' campaign which is giving younger patients a voice and changing clinical practice and policy to stop bowel cancer in people under 50. Every year 2,400 younger people are diagnosed with bowel cancer in the UK. While this is only five per cent of those diagnosed, this number is slowly increasing. Their research has shown that younger bowel cancer patients have a very different experience of diagnosis, treatment and care.
