My son has just been diagnosed

  • Hi  and a warm welcome to the board. There’s lots of experience and support here. Does your son have a treatment plan in place yet? Bowel cancer is notoriously slow growing but very treatable. Stay away from google - it can be scary and out of date - you can ask anything you like on here and we’ll try our best to help you

    Take care

  • Thanks for replying yesterday I have been looking at Google and they all tell you something different. His tumour is 50mm and he is seeing the surgeon on Wednesday I am scared that it might have spread 

  • Hi  Yes it’s easy to get confused with google and a lot of the information is out of date. My tumour was 40mm but size is not an indicator of severity. The scans will check if there’s any spread but there is still treatment available if that is the case.

    Please let us know how it goes on Wednesday?
