As part of our unique approach to digestive health, at OneWelbeck we take the treatment of bowel cancer as something which requires the utmost care and attention.
Bowel Cancer UK estimates that there are 42,000 new cases of bowel cancer diagnosed every year, and it is one of the most common cancer types in the UK. There are common causes which help specialists like the team at OneWelbeck be well equipped to diagnose and treat bowel cancer.
In this brief blog post, we wanted to give some insight into the risk factors of bowel cancer, and how you might go about getting screened before receiving treatment.
The most common risk factors of bowel cancer are:
- Family history
- Genetic conditions
