Cancer is a leading cause of disability and death, and by the time it is diagnosed, it has probably been developing for months or even years. The early signs are often subtle and inconclusive, so many people who have cancer don’t even know they have it. Fortunately, much can be done to prevent or at least delay onset of cancer. According to the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), at least half of all cancer deaths are preventable by healthy eating, exercise, maintaining appropriate weight, avoiding smoking and going for regular screenings.
Everyone knows that lung cancer is caused by smoking, but do you know how other cancers like cervical, breast, prostate, etc. start? Do you know when they typically strike and how you can detect them early (when they are easier to treat)?
