Shocking Rise in Cancer Cases Among Young People: How to Prevent and Manage the Disease

Despite the common belief that young people are protected from cancer, statistics show that the incidence of cancer among this age group is on the rise.

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.
