Preventive Health Tips

Preventive screenings are critical.
The American Cancer Society recommends these screenings for most adults: colorectal, prostate, mammogram and cervical – PAP/pelvic. Learn what the screening guidelines are for each, and sign up for an e-reminder to keep you on track.
A cancer-related check-up each year also is important.
For people age 20 or older having periodic health exams, a cancer-related check-up should include health counseling and, depending on a person’s age and gender, exams for cancers of the thyroid, oral cavity, skin, lymph nodes, testes, and ovaries, as well as for some non-malignant (non-cancerous) diseases.
Take control of your health and reduce cancer risk in a few other simple ways:
  • Stay away from tobacco.
  • Stay at a healthy weight.
  • Get moving with regular physical activity.
  • Eat healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables.
  • Limit how much alcohol you drink (if you drink at all).
  • Protect your skin.
  • Know yourself, your family history, and your risks.
  • Have regular check-ups and cancer screening tests.
