Help us to stop bowel cancer


Surgery is the most common treatment for bowel cancer. You may have surgery together with radiotherapy or chemotherapy to make the cancer easier to remove or if there is a risk of the cancer coming back. 

Your healthcare team will help you decide on the best treatment for you. They may not recommend surgery if you are too unfit for the operation or if you have advanced cancer that can’t be removed by surgery.
