Colorectal cancer has become a reality for many people younger than age 50, and it’s the only group where incidence rates are on the rise. In fact, 11% of colon cancer diagnoses and 18% of rectal cancer diagnoses occur in those under 50. We’re committed to finding answers, supporting those diagnosed and empowering people to take a proactive approach to their health.
The hard reality: you’re never too young for colorectal cancer. That’s why we need to educate ourselves about the risks of this disease now regardless if you currently have symptoms or are of average-risk.
Information about early-onset colon cancer is continuing to change and those diagnosed are facing challenges that we’re committed to addressing.
