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.
