Colorectal Cancer Most Prevalent Among 50+ Population

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 52,000 men and women died of colorectal cancer in 2007.

More than 90 percent of colorectal cancer cases are in people 50 and older. The elderly population has a significantly greater likelihood of developing CRC than do younger individuals. The American Cancer Society recommends that treatment not be withheld on the basis of age.
