Obesity and alcohol are fuelling a worrying rise in cancer among the under-50s, a study suggests.

The number of cases among younger cancer patients has soared by 79 per cent in the last three decades, research found.

The growth is particularly prominent among wealthy countries like the UK, suggesting lifestyle factors are largely to blame.

Researchers analysed data from the Global Burden of Disease 2019 Study for 29 cancers in 204 countries and regions.

They looked at new cases, deaths, health consequences and risk factors in people aged 14 to 49, estimating an annual percentage for each year.

In 2019, there were 3.26 million new cancer diagnoses for under-50s, an increase of 79.1 per cent since 1990.

The biggest increases were among prostate and windpipe cancers, rising by 2.28 per cent and 2.23 cent per year respectively or more than 66 per cent since 2019.
