Is it harder to spot early cancer in triathletes?
A mate of mine competed in two half irons last year within 2 months. Following the second he got stomach cramps.....Diagnosis - primary bowel and secondary liver cancer and very far gone. No symptoms prior and the consultant said that in very physically fit people it can often become apparent only when it's too late. Has anyone got any insight into this and whether physically fit people need to consider additional tests? He was only 47 and they don't test for bowel until you're 50.
