MedLine Citation:
PMID:  3573774     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Autopsy records of ten patients aged 40 or younger with colorectal carcinoma were reviewed. The local and metastatic spread of the cancer was similar to that seen in colorectal cancers occurring in older people. Colorectal cancer in young people is biologically not more aggressive or virulent than that in older patients.
