Colorectal Cancer

Question: How rare are stomach and/or colorectal cancer occurances in teenagers? Also, does obesity dramatically increase the chances of a teen getting stomach and/or colorectal cancer?

Answer: Those two are extremely rare in a teen. Colorectal cancers are usual in the elderly, or tend to run in families. Stomach cancers are as well, very rare in teens. My husband, in general family practice, has never seen either in 25 years of practice.
