Cancer trends, no. 4: cancer in adolescents and young adults
National Cancer Registry Ireland (NCRI)
Cancer is uncommon in adolescents and young adults. In 1994-2008, cancers in individuals aged 15-19 made up 0.4% of all registered cancers (including non-invasive types), and 1.3% in those aged 20-24. Between 1994 and 2008 there was little change in cancer numbers for males, and for females under 20. Cases in females aged 20-24 increased significantly (annual percentage increase 10.9%) from 1994 . This increase, which was mostly due to carcinoma in situ of cervix, reached a peak of 345 cases diagnosed in 2004 and shows some signs of decrease subsequently.
