It is sometimes hard to know why one person gets cancer and another doesn’t. The cause of some cancers is not well understood. But about half of cancers can be prevented through healthy living, body awareness and getting checked (screening).

In the Prevention and Detection section you can find information and services to help you:

  • Learn about healthy choices you can make to reduce your risk
  • Find out what you can do to detect cancer early
  • Know when to get checked
  • Find additional support and information

Patient & Family Services

Many support services are available to help you and your family at this stage of the cancer journey.
