A study published by the American Cancer Society (ACS) and National Cancer Institute (NCI), tracked cancer trends in the United States for common cancers types over a ten year period, from 1995 to 2014.1 The study found an increase in the number of cancer cases being diagnosed in young adults for several cancer types including colorectal, gallbladder, kidney, pancreatic and uterine. The rising number of young adults being diagnosed with colorectal cancer shows the importance in knowing what symptoms to watch for, and talking with your primary care physician early on to establish a screening schedule that takes into consideration your personal and family health history. By taking a more proactive approach, you can lower your risk of developing colorectal and other cancers.
