Some people poo several times a day, and others poo twice a week. What’s important is to know what’s normal for you. However, if you experience a change in bowel habit that doesn’t clear up, it can be a sign of bowel cancer.
You might find you’re going to the toilet more often or less often than is normal for you. Your poo might be looser, softer or runnier than normal, or it might be drier and harder. You might find it difficult or painful to have a poo.
If something changes or doesn’t feel right, then contact your GP. If you’re not sure what’s going on, then you could keep track of your symptoms in a diary.
