Core Tip Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of all cancer related deaths in the United States. Unfortunately, the incidence of patients with CRC under age 50 is on the rise, reported on average between 8%-10% of all CRC diagnosis. Given the recent guideline modification from the American Cancer Society to propose screening to start at age 45, clinicians need a better understanding on which populations to screen earlier. Our manuscript uniquely outlines potential risk factors for early-onset CRC by comparing diagnosed patients with non-CRC patients, which has not been reported in prior literature.
