Bowel cancer is the second commonest cause of cancer death in Australian, after lung cancer. Many people believe that it is a condition that mainly affects men, but figures clearly show that it affects an almost equal number of women.

Whilst breast cancer is the third commonest cause of cancer death overall, there are a greater number of women dying from breast cancer than bowel cancer simply because the former is almost exclusively confined to women.
