For Bowel cancer, Colorectal cancer and Rectal cancer
- People with colorectal cancer, their families and carers
- Health professionals working in secondary care
- Cancer Alliances and cancer clinical networks
- Commissioners of colorectal cancer preventative and treatment services (including Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England Specialised Commissioning)
- the draft recommendations
- recommendations for research
- rationale and impact sections that explain why the committee made the recommendations and how they might affect practice and services
- the guideline context
- age – almost 9 in 10 cases of bowel cancer occur in people aged 60 or over
- diet – a diet high in red or processed meats and low in fibre can increase your risk
- weight – bowel cancer is more common in people who are overweight or obese
- exercise – being inactive increases your risk of getting bowel cancer
- alcohol – drinking alcohol might increase your risk of getting bowel cancer
- smoking– smoking may increase your chances of getting bowel cancer
- family history – having a close relative (mother or father, brother or sister) who developed bowel cancer under the age of 50 puts you at a greater lifetime risk of developing the condition; screening is offered to people in this situation, and you should discuss this with your GP
