Reduce your risk

Around 4 in 10 UK cancer cases every year could be prevented (that's more than 135,000 cases every year). Making changes to your lifestyle can help reduce your risk of developing cancer and other diseases. It'll also make you feel better and healthier.

Changes can include:

  • drinking less alcohol
  • quitting smoking
  • eating fruit and veg
  • staying a healthy weight
  • exercising more
  • taking care in the sun

You can find out more about how to reduce your risk on the Screening Saves Lives website.
