Hi Ben, thanks for your post. Our latest figures show that bowel cancer incidence in those aged 0-49 accounts for about 7 per cent of total diagnoses. That's why our focus at CCV is those aged 50 and older. That's not to say we don't value young people with colorectal cancers (like your good looking self/mates) getting out there and spreading the message about bowel cancer screening - we recommend anyone with symptoms or a family history of the disease talk to their doctor about it whatever their age.
