Prevention and detection

Preventing cancer

Family history, lifestyle and where you work or live may increase your risk of getting cancer. That's why we encourage you to speak with your primary care provider about changes you can make to help prevent cancer.

Over their lifetimes, one in every two American men and one in three American women will probably get cancer.
