Look at the stats: Cancer principally is a disease of old age. Every now and then somebody younger, perhaps a celebrity, might get a case of one cancer or another at a younger age and it becomes popular thought that cancer attacks the young, but the vast majority of cancer cases are age 70 and above. But please, use your worries constructively. Colonoscopy and mammography are very helpful in finding earlier cases.
