Question by Will the weathernut: What types of Cancer would I be most vulnerable to, I am a male 25 years old?
I have heard different age groups in adults and young people are more prone to certain cancers than other people of other age groups.

Best answer:

Answer by Denisedds
There are only 2 that are more prevalent in your age group than others and that is testicular cancer has the highest rate,at 48% but it is pretty uncommon with about 11,000 cases total in the US every year and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

EDIT: The age group most likely to get bone cancer are those 20 years old and under at 29.5%.
For leukemia the age range is 75-84 years old at 23.5%
For brain cancer it is 55-64 years old at 18%.

What it boils down to is at your age cancer should be the least of your concerns. A 25 year old male is far more likely to die in a car accident.

    Lymphoma, testicular cancer, bone cancer ( rare), and possibly leukemia and brain cancer ( also rare.

    In fact, all those cancers are rare. But they are some types of cancer that young people are prone to.

    Hodgkins lymphoma and Testicular cancer are the only two cancers that peak in a person 20s, typically late 20s.
