Welcome to another episode of That Cancer Conversation!

While it’s still relatively rare for people in their 30s and 40s to get bowel cancer, cases are rising.

Dr Anisha Patel (@doctorsgetcancertoo), a practicing GP, was diagnosed with stage 3 bowel cancer when she was 39. Now, 6 years on, Anisha has dedicated herself to raising awareness of cancer, especially in adults under 50.

In this episode we talk to Anisha about her diagnosis, her book and the work she’s doing to helping Cancer Grand Challenges team PROSPECT understand what’s driving the rise in early-onset bowel cancer cases.

If you’d like to talk to someone, our nurses are available Monday to Friday 9-5pm on freephone 0808 800 4040.

You can listen and subscribe for free on Apple PodcastsSpotify or wherever you get your podcasts.
