Answers So Far..

  • Someone asked:
    about what age will I die?
  • Someone asked:
    what are my chances of having cancer right this moment? I'm a male in my 20s

      The risk of your having cancer is going to depend on a lot of things, such as your family history, race, genetics, and environmental factors. But Generally speaking... A male's lifetime risk of getting cancer is about 42% (source). But cancer is a disease of older folk - young adults age 15-24 make up less than 1% of all new cancer cases, according to a UK study. The only cancer that occurs more frequently in men of your age is testicular cancer - but it is highly treatable. For more info on that, check out this article on cancer risks for each decade of life for men.
