  • Over 42,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in the UK.

  • Around 268,000 people living in the UK today have been diagnosed with bowel cancer.

  • More than nine out of ten new cases (94%) are diagnosed in people over the age of 50, and nearly six out of ten cases (59%) are diagnosed in people aged 70 or over. But bowel cancer can affect anyone of any age. More than 2,500 new cases are diagnosed each year in people under the age of 50.

  • 1 in 15 men and 1 in 18 women will be diagnosed with bowel cancer during their lifetime.
