Paying Attention to the Rise in Advanced-Stage Early-Onset CRC
March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month – an ideal time to educate and inform the population about the trends of colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence and mortality in the U.S. New data released by the American Cancer Society predict that of the 153,020 new CRC cases predicted in 2023, 13% (nearly 20,000) will be in individuals younger than 50 years (early-onset CRC). This means improving screening rates in the 45-49 population is even more important. Also important is improving awareness of the signs and symptoms of CRC.
