April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - an important opportunity to make everyone aware of the symptoms and the importance of getting screened for this preventable type of cancer.

If it is detected early, colon (bowel) cancer can be easily treated.  Bowel Cancer UK reports that "more than 9 in 10 people survive bowel cancer when it is diagnosed at the earliest stage. However, this drops significantly when diagnosed at the latest stage."

The really good news is that this cancer can also be prevented, if the precursor signs are detected through screening.  40tude encourages everyone to get themselves screened as early as possible. Please take a moment to find out the screening options available, and make this the year that you take action - it could save your life.
