Cancer types

Small bowel cancer

This section will help you to find out more about cancer of the small bowel (also called cancer of the small intestine). This is much rarer than cancer of the large bowel.  The term "bowel cancer" usually refers to large bowel cancer. If you want information on large bowel cancer please see the separate  large bowel cancer section.

If you have been affected by cancer in some way and would like to talk to someone about what you have read or need help finding information - you are welcome to drop into any Maggie’s Centre or to visit Maggie’s Online Centre and talk with a cancer support specialist.
