If anything Iíd like this to be an awareness point for others on here maybe, I had severe symptoms dismissed as anything but cancer over several years eg IBS and intolerances. I was also refused referrals being told ďIím simply too young for cancerĒ. Iím 43 now but have been complaining of this since my late 20s. Since established it has been sat there metastasising for at least 8 to 9 years and there was evidence of something, poss a polyp, going bad.
If anyone ever has a change in bowel or stool habits and it doesnít go away, please speak to your GP and insist on on FIT test at a minimum.
