- •A total of 240,772 SEER patients with colorectal cancer (2004-2015) were analyzed
- •About 14.6% of patients were diagnosed with early-onset colorectal cancer (age 20-49)
- •By decade, patients at young and old age extremes had worse 5 year survival
- •Diagnostic stage was the most significant predictor of increased mortality risk
- •Older age, not younger age, was independently linked with increased mortality risk
