Cancer more likely to affect younger people now: These are potential causes
Scientists undertook thorough studies of accessible data in the literature and online to explain why many younger people are now being diagnosed with cancer.
Younger people are now more likely to develop cancer, a new study has revealed. Early-onset cancers, or those identified before the age of 50, had dramatically increased globally since 1990, Brigham and Women's Hospital researchers discovered. These cancers include kidney, liver, pancreatic, breast, colon, esophageal and colon cancers. The study's conclusions were published in Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology.
