Colorectal (Bowel) Cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in Australia. It’s incidence appears to be slowly increasing and the risk of developing bowel cancer before the age of 85 is 1 in 12. Fortunately many cases of bowel cancer are curable and surgery has advanced over the last couple of decades so that the majority of cancers can be removed using a laparoscopic (“keyhole”) technique so recovery from the surgery is quicker and a stoma (“bowel bag”) can be avoided.
