MACMILLAN Cancer Support’s Mobile Information and Support Service will be visiting Durham tomorrow, with cancer information specialists on hand to answer any questions.

The team will be in Durham Market Place from 9am until 4pm and encourages anyone with worries relating to cancer to stop by.

With April being Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, Macmillan is encouraging people to be aware of the signs and symptoms of the disease.

Bowel cancer is the UK’s fourth most common cancer. In the UK in 2013-2015, on average more than four in 10 (44 per cent) of new cases were in people aged 75 and over.

Cara Connolly, a Macmillan Information and Support Specialist on the unit, said: “Knowing what changes to look for and when to see your doctor could make a real difference. Don’t be scared or embarrassed.”
