Doctors should follow up on CRC symptoms in younger adults

ACG SmartBrief | Mar 20, 2017

Study data show an increase in colorectal cancer cases among younger adults, who may not associate common symptoms with the disease. Dr. Mark Pochapin, Treasurer of the American College of Gastroenterology and of the New York University Langone Medical Center, said physicians need to be vigilant and not dismiss the possibility of CRC in younger patients who present with symptoms. Dr. Renee Williams, of the NYU School of Medicine and Chair of ACG's Minority Affairs and Cultural Diversity Committee, advised that young people should understand family history of CRC, any medical conditions that may affect one's risk of CRC, and that certain screening guidelines recommend that African-Americans begin screening at age 45.
