Bowel Cancer Australia_Call on Canberra

MEDIA ALERT – PHOTO OPPORTUNITY

Youthfulness should not be a barrier to timely diagnosis

 

Where: Forecourt, Parliament House, Canberra

 

When: Tuesday, 20 June at 8.15am

 

What: 50 early-onset bowel cancer patients and medical experts

 

Australians from around the country impacted by early-onset bowel cancer along with medical experts will visit Parliament House to participate in Bowel Cancer Australia’s inaugural Call on Canberra to raise awareness and advocate for important policy change.

 

Latest Australian research reveals younger people with bowel cancer symptoms find self-advocating to be the only consistent and reliable resource for overcoming age bias, barriers to diagnosis, and optimising outcomes for the deadliest cancer in those aged 25-44.

 

  • 1-in-10 new bowel cancer cases are diagnosed in people under age 50 (1,680 annually).

 

  • Bowel cancer is the deadliest cancer for people aged 25-44.

 

  • Over the past three decades there has been a 266% increase in bowel cancer incidence rates in adolescents and young adults (15-24 years).
