    Generally the very young and the very old, although anyone is at risk.  The very young from mutations during gestation and the very old from accumulated random mutations.

    The elderly. You always hear that if you lived long enough, you’d get cancer. Cells eventually go haywire with mutations and that’s where bad things start to happen.

    Advancing age is the most important risk factor for cancer overall, and for many individual cancer types. According to the most recent statistical data from National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program, the median age of a cancer diagnosis is 66 years.
