Worldwide Medical Insurance News: GP check-up advised for bowel cancer

Worldwide medical insurance customers who find themselves experiencing the symptoms of bowel cancer for more than three weeks should make an appointment with their GP.

According to Mark Flannagan, chief executive of the charity Beating Bowel Cancer, said that it is important that people protect themselves by learning about the symptoms and action upon them if necessary.

Mr Flannagan offered some diet and lifestyle for people who want to reduce their risk of developing bowel cancer in the first place.

"Overall it is important to eat a healthy balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and whole grains," he said.

The cancer expert added that it is recommended that people do not eat any more than 70g of processed or red meat a day.

Moderating alcohol intake will also help to lower the risk of developing the disease.
