Cancer Prevention Screenings
What you eat and drink, if you exercise, how you live and where you work are all factors that can affect your risk for cancer. You should have regular check-ups with your primary care provider and discuss the appropriate ages to begin cancer screenings. These screenings may include, but are not limited to, colonoscopies, mammograms, self breast exams, pap smears and prostate exams.
