Prof John Marshall - Georgetown University Hospital, Washington D.C., USA

Prof John Marshall speaks to ecancer at the 2019 International Gastrointestinal, Liver and Uro-Oncology Conference (IGILUC) in Cairo about the incidence of colon cancer among the younger population.

He discusses the demographic changes in colon cancer and some of the contributing factors that may have caused this shift.

The precise reasons for this phenomenon still remain unknown, however, Prof Marshall explains how microbial alterations may be involved.

Prof Marshall believes that the medical community need to recognise this phenomenon to prevent the delay of diagnosis and therefore the occurrence of advanced disease.
