The big inflatable bowel shows Ipswich residents things like pre-cancerous polyps, advanced polyps, bowel cancer - malignant tumour, severe colitis, diverticulitis, mild colitis and crohns disease.

Whilst it may be a little strange and ugly to look at, the Bowel Cancer Australia’s Big Bowel will remind Ipswich residents to participate in bowel cancer prevention and screening initiatives.

An astounding 7 metres in length and 2.4 metres high, the walk through inflatable Big Bowel exhibition features some of the pathologies that may be found inside the human colon, including bowel cancer.

During their journey, visitors will view everything on a larger than life scale. The three-dimensional interior features healthy tissue, pre-cancerous polyps, advanced polyps, bowel cancer – malignant tumour, severe colitis, diverticulitis, mild colitis and crohns disease.

A tour of the Big Bowel will benefit all visitors, showing them in a memorable way that bowel cancer is ‘preventable, treatable and beatable.’

You can see the Big Bowel at Springfield today at Education City Drive (off Sinnathamby Boulevard) from 10.30am to 2pm. All interested community members are invited to take a tour of the Big Bowel and learn more about managing bowel health.
