April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month – if you have any symptoms that you are concerned about and feel too nervous or embarrassed to go to see your GP, please think again.  Even if you find it uncomfortable to go along, it is important that you do go and get yourself checked out.  It will probably be nothing, but be kind to yourself and your family – and get it checked out!   Bowel cancer is the 4th most common cancer in the UK – however, it has very high success rates if diagnosed early.
