Early Age Onset CRC Summit

Postby heiders33 » Sun Mar 04, 2018 2:42 pm

The 4th annual Early Age Onset CRC Summit is happening in NYC at the end of April: http://www.coloncancerchallenge.org/about/eao-crc/

This looks to be a very interesting summit. My surgeon is attending as well as a man in my church who works in the field of CRC screening. I unfortunately will not be able to attend as I'll be in Bermuda that week for a much-needed vacation. 8) However, the session on additional possible causes of MSS young onset colorectal cancer looks especially interesting as it applies to my situation. Anyway, if you are in the NYC area, I recommend looking into this summit! It's put on by the Colon Cancer Challenge and is taking place on April 27-28.

Thanks for posting this important information. This conference looks like a very interesting event. Also, among the speakers in the conference there will be at least three ColonClub members on the program.

For persons unable to attend the conference, a brief summary of the basic issues of EAO-CRC can be appreciated by reading the following document:

Understanding Early Age Onset CRC
http://www.coloncancerchallenge.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Endoeconomics_Uderstanding_Early_Age_Onset_CRC.pdf

... There’s been an over 50% increase in CRC for people age
20-49 since 1994, and that the trend is increasing. Also,
18% of all rectal cancers take place in people under the
age of 50. Over the next 10-12 years, that is projected to
rise to 25% — a dramatic statistic. This means one-quarter
of all rectal cancers will occur in people below the age in
which we screen for rectal cancers.
