Colon Cancer on the Rise in Young Adults
Colon cancer was once thought to mainly affect people aged 50 and older.

However, a recent article by Charlotte Libov shows that 15% of those suffering from colon cancer are under age 50.

An estimated 132,700 adults will be diagnosed with colon and rectal cancer in 2016. Colon cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer. Colon cancer is the second deadliest cancer for men and women combined.

Libov, an award-winning author and patient advocate, discusses what you need to know about colon cancer.
