#Flash: Risk Of Colorectal Cancer Extends to Distant Relativ
A study provides new insight into the magnitude of risk for more distant relatives of colorectal cancer cases It was found that individuals are at a 2.6-fold higher risk of colorectal cancer at any age if they have a first degree relative with early-onset colon cancer. The risk is 1.96 and 1.3 times greater for second- and third-degree relatives, respectively. It is suggested that early screening may be beneficial for second and third-degree relatives.
