(CNN) I am a 45-year-old woman who’s always been in fairly good health. I practice yoga, run nine miles a week, love kale, avoid red meat, generally get enough sleep and don’t smoke cigarettes. I also have stage 3 colon cancer — I was diagnosed a mere two months after the government’s colonoscopy screening age recommendation was lowered from 50 to 45. I was surprised as anyone to find myself among the alarming recent rise in patients under 50 being diagnosed with colon cancer.
