Prevention

Updated: September 23.2013


Did you know that more than 50% of cancers are preventable? What you eat, whether you smoke, your level of activity, and how you spend time in the sun are all lifestyle choices that can affect your chances of getting cancer - and your chances of preventing it.

You can also protect yourself through the BC Cancer Agency's Screening Programs, which can detect breast and cervical cancer at early stages.

To find out more about how you can reduce your risk of developing many common types of cancer, follow the links on the left. More information on our specific programs and publications is available under "About Us".
