Why are young adults getting colorectal cancer? This three-part series examines what is known about the growing incidence of early-onset colorectal cancer, what factors may be driving it, and the heroic efforts to arrest this devastating and frequently deadly form of the disease. Dr John Marshall, a leading oncologist, explores this phenomenon by taking us into the exam rooms and labs of a major cancer research center, and into the lives of two patients in their 30s who have metastatic colorectal cancer.
