Beating bowel cancer together

Research

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer and second biggest cancer killer in the UK. However, it shouldn't be because it is treatable and curable especially if diagnosed early and there have been major advances in treatments and bowel cancer screening programmes in recent years.

Lives could be saved if we diagnosed people earlier, develop new and more effective treatments (including improvements to surgery), and ensure people, irrespective of where they live, have access to high quality care. The major advances in saving lives from bowel cancer in the past 20 years have all come through research. Through strategic investment in targeted research, we will deliver improvements in bowel cancer survival in our lifetime.
