by Shearly (SU)
A new study by the American Cancer Society recently highlighted the fact that deaths due to rectal and colon cancer are on the rise. Adults under the age of 55 are dying at a higher rate than they have in the past. What makes this even more serious is that adults under the age of 50 are rarely advised to undergo screenings for rectal and colon cancer. As yet, the specific reason for younger patients developing colon and rectal cancer, and the higher mortality rate, has not yet been well established.
