What Are the Symptoms of Bowel Cancer?
It is widely recognised that early symptoms of bowel cancer can be difficult to detect an can often be confused with less serious conditions.
However, if you complain of symptoms that could relate to bowel cancer, it is the responsibility of your doctor to ensure that they carry out extensive tests in order to rule out the condition.

- Unexplained weight loss

If a medical professional has failed to properly investigate any of the above symptoms, it may have contributed to your bowel cancer misdiagnosis.
