WHAT IS CANCER?

There are more than 200 types of cancer and they have one thing in common – they’re caused by the uncontrolled growth of your body’s cells. There are things we can do to reduce the risk of getting cancer including changing our lifestyles.

We’ve already made huge progress. We have the knowledge and the technology, what we need now is the money to bring it all together. And we won’t stop until all 200 are beaten.

HOW TO SPOT IT

If it’s diagnosed early, we have more chance of beating cancer. So get to know your body. If you spot any unexplained or persistent changes, go to see your doctor.

Unusual lumps or swelling, unexplained weight loss, breathlessness or blood in your urine or bowels are common symptoms.  Keep an eye out and if you spot them, stop cancer in its tracks.

REDUCE THE RISK

Experts estimate that more than 4 in 10  cancer cases could be prevented by lifestyle changes. Smoking is the biggest preventable cause of cancer in the world, so if you’re a smoker the best thing you can do for your health is to quit. Keeping a healthy weight, cutting down on alcohol, being physically active, having a healthy balanced diet and enjoying the sun safely are all also great ways to reduce the risk of cancer.

Living a healthy lifestyle isn’t a guarantee against cancer, but it helps stack the odds in your favour.
