Up to half of all cancers may be preventable with proper screening and a healthy lifestyle. Cancer is much feared, but we hold great power to reduce our risk of developing many forms of the disease. Although factors such as age, ethnicity, and heredity are out of our control, we can still take charge of our health and wellness and manage our risk. Your Guide to Cancer Prevention was written by expert cancer nurses to arm you with information to understand your risk and incorporate lifestyle and screening practices to improve your health and lower your cancer risk.
