My 33 year old husband was diagnosed with colon cancer last month, we are still waiting on the stage. He had a 10cm tumor removed last week.

My question is how long would it take for a tumor that size to develop? I read about colon cancer latency and it made it seem like this tumor could have been developing since he was in his 20s. Do younger people with colon cancer seem to have faster growing tumors?

My mother passed away from colon cancer in 2010, so I’ve joked this month that I’m way too f-ing aware of colon cancer! I am ready to spread that awareness to others and helped them to get screened.

Thank you so much for all of your work and best wishes to you Abigail!
