What you need to know about rising cancer rates among people younger than 65

[Business Insider, May 02, 2024] More people under the age of 45 are being diagnosed with cancer than ever before. This is happening around the world, and researchers don’t know why. However, there is a push to make sure everyone is educated about signs, symptoms and screenings so the cancer can be caught early, which provides the best chance of beating the cancer and surviving.

To help tell the story of the rising number of cancer diagnoses in younger patients, Business Insider interviewed Allina Health Cancer Institute patient Chris Rodriguez, who was 35 years old when he was diagnosed with colorectal cancer.
