Early-onset colorectal cancer rates continue to increase globally, according to a study published in Gut.

Researchers analyzed data from the Cancer Incidence in Five Continents dataset and other supplemental sources to report on worldwide CRC incidence rates between 2008 and 2012.

1. Incidence rates increased in 19 countries in an under 50-year-old cohort. Nine of those countries decreased CRC incidence rate in an older cohort.

4. Young adults in Cyprus, the Netherlands and Norway saw a twice-as-rapid increase when compared to older adults.

Researchers concluded, "CRC incidence increased exclusively in young adults in nine high-income countries spanning three continents, potentially signalling changes in early-life exposures that influence large bowel carcinogenesis."
