Description: Download on iTunes: A new study of MD Anderson patients diagnosed with colon cancer before age 35 found that certain genetic factors can raise the lifetime risk of that disease, from the average 5% to as high as 80%. Eduardo Vilar Sanchez, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of Clinical Cancer Prevention, explains the study's findings, outlines the genetic syndromes associated with the higher risk of colon cancer, and lists “red flags” that would suggest a person should undergo genetic testing for colon cancer.
