U.S. rates of colon, rectal cancers rising among young adults

"The most important question is do we need to screen sooner", Berlin said.

Doctors expect colorectal cancer to kill about 50,260 people in 2017, according to the American Cancer Society. "Plus, many public and private insurance plans cover colorectal cancer screening and there may be local resources available to help those that are uninsured". "What your family might not know is that Ontario has some of the highest rates of colon cancer in the world".

This explains why three out of ten colorectal cancers are now diagnosed in people under 55 years of age. By way of comparison, the disease rate among older Americans has plummeted by more than 100 cases per 100,000 people. The good news is that the rise in CRC in young adults could have been even worse if it weren't for the long-term declines in smoking and alcohol consumption. "Also, about a year ago, my sister who is significantly younger than me was diagnosed with colon cancer".

Capital Region health providers and government leaders joined the local chapter of the American Cancer Society Wednesday morning to commit to an effort to get more Capital Region residents checked for signs of colon cancer. People who have had polyps removed from their colon, as well as those with inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, have an increased risk for developing colon cancer.

The study shows that in the past several years, colon and rectal cancer rates rose more than 1% per year for every age group under 50. There is no wonder why people are anxious about the results found. In this time period, we were involved in the Industrial Revolution overseas, seeing major pollution in the air and foods not being completely stored well. Eating right can help people out.

In 2013 alone, researchers note, the number of colorectal cancers detected for some age cohorts was on par with the number of cases of cervical cancer detected. In adults aged 40 to 54, rectal cancer rates increased by two per cent per year from the 1990s to 2013. Either way, rates saw a rise.

Recently though, studies have reported increasing CRC incidence in adults under 50, for whom screening is not recommended for those at average risk.

"But there still needs to be further studies to investigate a correlation".

"Trends in young age groups are a bellwether for future disease burden", she said.

In both men and women, colorectal cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed types of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death.

This could be stopped by shifting a diet even slightly, by having red meat a few times a week and not every day. "We have certainly changed our diet from the 1950's to 1990's". "For people over 50, getting checked regularly can improve their chances of beating colon cancer". As of now, doctors recommend colonoscopies from 50 and beyond.
