What are the precautions one needs to take to prevent oneself from being afflicted by cancer?

  • Don’t use tobacco
  • Eat a healthy diet
    • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
    • Limit use of fat in diet
    • If you choose to drink alcohol, do so only in moderation
  • Maintain a healthy weight and be physically active
  • Protect yourself from the sun
  • Get immunized
  • Cancer prevention includes protection from certain viral infections like Hepatitis B & Human papilloma virus (HPV)
  • Avoid risky behaviour like unsafe sex and sharing needles.
  • Get regular self-exams and screenings for various types of cancers — such as cancer of the skin, colon, prostate, cervix and breast. This can increase the chances of discovering cancer early, when treatment is most likely to be successful.
