What is young-onset bowel cancer?

Young-onset bowel cancer refers to bowel cancer that is diagnosed in individuals who are typically under the age of 50. While the term "early-onset" is sometimes used, we prefer "young-onset" to describe this condition. The term "early-onset" can misleadingly imply that the disease has started earlier than expected, whereas "young-onset" more accurately reflects that the diagnosis is occurring at a younger age.
