In brief: Cancer at young age
Compared to other cancers that could happen to people - testicular cancer, hodgkin's lymphoma, certain sarcoma and leukemia are more likely - with young patients at 24 year old.
Those 4 can happen without family history. Patients with hereditary cancer syndrome ( breast, thyroid, stomach, brain) can be presented with cancer at younger age- but usually there is a family history with cancer there.

In brief: Rare
All cancers in this age group are very rare.
Hodgkin lymphoma, thyroid cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer are possible, but again, not common.
