Patients in South Carolina who have colorectal cancer may face the danger of misdiagnosis, especially if they develop the cancer at a younger age. According to a survey conducted by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, the majority of patients who were diagnosed with the cancer before the age of 50 were initially misdiagnosed with another illness. Colorectal cancer has been on the decline among older Americans, but the cancer has become more common among younger people, researchers said. They said that it was unclear why this trend is taking place.
