Knowing family history, symptoms key to early detection

A new study shows that colorectal cancer has grown more prevalent in young adults and KUSI-TV News recently interviewed Nedinia Farol about her experience with the disease. Nedinia was diagnosed with colon cancer in her early 40s and is now doing well after chemotherapy and surgery at Scripps.


Scripps Clinic gastroenterologist Walter Coyle, MD, also joined the discussion to explain the importance of knowing your family history, as well as personal health symptoms to monitor.


The original KUSI video, titled "Colorectal Cancer on the Rise in Young Adults," is not available at this time.
