The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released the first comprehensive picture of what colon cancer patients can expect to experience in their lifetime.
In fact, they have identified about 6.5 million new cases of colon cancer each year in the United States.
“There’s no question that colon cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide, and it’s very difficult to predict what this disease will look like in the future,” said Dr. Robert Schuster, chief of the division of cancer research at the University of Michigan, who co-authored the new study.
The study found that colon cancers are increasing worldwide, though not to the same extent as some other cancers, and that there are significant disparities in risk between racial and ethnic groups, including between Caucasians and non-Caucasians.
The new study, published in the journal Cancer Causes & Control, examined colon cancer cases and deaths in more than 1,800 people in the U.K., Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
It’s important to note that this is just the first analysis of colon cancers and that it focuses on the U, U. K. and Australia, and not on the United Arab Emirates, where colon cancer incidence is relatively low.
The CDC is not yet conducting an international study of colon-cancer risk.
In addition to providing the first look at the impact of colon and rectal cancers on the global population, the study also provides information on what the disease symptoms are, how common the disease is in different racial and racial/ethnic groups, and how the disease might change over time.
For example, it found that, although colon cancer has become the leading cause of cancer death in the world, the majority of colon tumors are not related to the cancer itself.
And even if they are, they’re unlikely to be harmful in their current form.
In other words, these new findings suggest that we can make better decisions in how we think about colon and/or rectal cancer patients, especially considering how prevalent it is globally.
The U. S. has seen an explosion of colon tumor cases since the 1980s, with the nation experiencing more than 400,000 new cases in 2014.
While the disease has been declining in the last decade, it still kills at a higher rate than other cancers.
According to Schuster’s research, the most likely risk factors for colon cancer are the type of diet and the number of times people have been exposed to radiation.
“We know that colon colon cancer cells are very responsive to the radiation they are exposed to,” Schuster said.
“If we can find a way to reduce radiation exposure, then there is hope that the incidence of colon carcinoma can decrease.
But there are still many unknowns about colon-cell-based cancer.”
