Cancer Prevention

Know the Signs

The common cold is easy to identify: a runny nose, sneezing and congestion. But what about cancer? Its symptoms can be less obvious. Learn what to look for to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Prevent Common Cancers

Maintaining a healthy weight can help lower your risk of more than 10 common cancers, including:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Gynecologic cancers
  • And pancreatic cancer

Eating a balanced diet, not smoking and reducing your stress level can also lower your risk of cancer. Learn more below.

 

Talk to Your Doctor

In the past 20 years, the number of cancer survivors has increased, thanks in part to screenings. They help your care team find cancer when it’s easier to treat. For instance, a mammogram can detect breast cancer before you feel a lump. However, not all cancers have screening tests, so it’s important to know the signs and talk to your provider.

Do you have a family history of cancer? Ask your doctor about genetic testing. Enloe offers it and:

  • Lifetime breast cancer risk assessment
  • Evaluation for hereditary cancer syndromes
  • Follow-up

Learn more in our Cancer Risk Assessment brochure.
