A startling 80% rise in cancer rates among young adults

Alarming Rise in Young People’s Cancer Incidence: Why it Matters and How to Stay Healthy

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the incidence of cancer among young people. Despite the belief that young people are immune to cancer, statistics show that cancer is becoming more prevalent in the 20-44 age group. This trend has been observed globally, with the number of cases increasing by an astonishing 79% between 1990 and 2019.

In Israel, testicular cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, malignant melanoma, breast cancer, and thyroid cancer are some of the most common types of cancer among young people. To prevent this disease from taking hold, it’s crucial to adopt a healthy lifestyle from an early age. This includes avoiding smoking and drugs, maintaining a balanced diet, staying physically active, reducing alcohol consumption and ensuring safe sun exposure.

Recognizing suspicious symptoms early on is also critical. If you experience unexplained pain or weight loss or have other persistent symptoms such as fatigue or changes in skin or moles, seek medical attention immediately. Specific symptoms to watch out for include changes in weight, unexplained pain or lumps in various parts of the body such as breasts or skin lesions and symptoms affecting digestion or reproduction.

The Association to Fight Cancer offers free support and resources for young people facing cancer. Their services include support groups, workshops for counseling services and advocacy in the health system. If you need help or have any questions about their services or resources available on their website teleinformation line should be contacted for more information on how to access their services.
