I’ve just found out that I’ve got stage 4 rectal cancer and a shadow on my liver.”That’s damn hard to read too I’m sure. Gonna give it my best shot though.Most read in Showbiz”Stay positive, cos I am. Always. Seeing the doctors on Friday to discuss the next steps.”A social media statement for Dario G announced his death and paid tribute to the musician.This Morning’s Dr Phillipa reveals terrifying moment she was diagnosed with bowel cancer at 39 as she prepares for final 12-hour surgeryIt read: “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Paul Spencer earlier today.”He was positive until the end but this was one battle he could not fight anymore.Bowel Cancer Signs That Could Save Your LifeBOWEL cancer is the fourth most common form of the disease in the UK – but the second deadliest, claiming around 16,000 lives a year.
    Yet it can be cured if it’s diagnosed early. 
    Fewer than one in ten people survive bowel cancer if it’s picked up at stage 4, but detected at stage 1 – before it’s spread – and more than nine in ten patients will live five years or longer.
    There are two ways to ensure early diagnosis, screening and awareness of the symptoms.
    Brits have been subjected to a postcode lottery when it comes to bowel cancer screening, with tests sent out in Scotland from 50, while people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland have to wait until they are 60.
    That’s why The Sun launched the No Time 2 Lose campaign, calling on the Government to lower the screening age, to save thousands of lives a year.
    In summer 2018 The Sun and its readers secured a huge win with the Health Minister at the time, Matt Hancock, agreeing to start screening at 50, however, this is yet to be widely rolled out.
    While screening is an important part of early diagnosis, so is knowing the symptoms and acting if you spot the signs.
    The five red-flag symptoms are:

    Bleeding from the back passage, or blood in your poo
    A change in your normal toilet habits – going more or less often for example
    Pain or lump in your tummy
    Extreme tiredness for no real reason
    Unexplained weight loss

    If you’re worried, don’t be embarrassed and speak to your GP – doctors see and deal with bowel problems all the time.

    “He leaves behind a wonderful musical legacy and many happy memories for many people.”He will be sadly missed by everyone who loved him. Shine bright our big star.”Paul released 15 singles and three albums under the group name.The most recent was Hola in June 2020.READ MORE SUN STORIESRectal cancer is often called bowel cancer.Stage four cancer is where the cancer has spread from where it started to another organ, often called secondary cancer.The musician said he was trying to ‘stay positive’Credit: InstagramHe told how his post was ‘hard to write’Credit: TwitterDario G performing at Wentworth Music Festival in 2023Credit: AlamyDario G released their second album In Full Colour in 2001The Cheshire-based star was part of an electronic music trioCredit: InstagramDario G are best known for their debut single SunchymeCredit: Biggest Disco More
