We're redefining the odds against colon cancer at a young age
Although colorectal cancer (cancer in the colon or rectum) occurs most often in people over age 50, you are never too you for colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer incidence is increasing in people younger than under age 50. People in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s can get colorectal cancer.
Average risk means you do not have a family history of colorectal cancer and do not suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD. If there is a family history of colorectal cancer, you may need to begin screening earlier. Talk to your family today to know your family history and understand your risk.
From immunizations to checkups and preventive care, exams, our primary care physicians and providers work to keep you and your whole family healthy and strong each and every day.
NevergTooYoungForCancer.com is an online resource for people defying and redefining the odds against colorectal cancer at a young age. We refuse to let cancer tell us who we are.
