Bowel cancer in the under 50s

Episode 8,  Aug 14, 2020, 01:31 PM

George Alagiah speaks to mum-of-three Sarah Bates, who was diagnosed with bowel cancer aged just 39, and oncologist Professor Mark Saunders, from The Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester, to discuss the impact of bowel cancer on people under the age of 50.

The trio discuss a range of issues highlighted in our Never Too Young report and the importance of GPs being aware that, although rare, young people can be diagnosed with the disease.
