To reduce your risk of developing cancer, you should eat a nutritious diet, get the right cancer screenings, and exercise regularly. The following resources will help you take control of your cancer risk.
A balanced diet is an important factor in cancer prevention, treatment and survivorship. At Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, patients can consult with a nutritionist to learn ways to manage the side effects of treatment and which foods can help restore energy levels.
Everyone can benefit from Dana-Farber's nutrition experts' suggestions for healthy recipes and cancer-fighting foods.
For certain forms of cancer, there are screenings that can detect the disease at its earliest stages. Read our recommendations for cancer screening for colorectal, lung, oral, skin, breast, and cervical cancer.
In addition, Dana-Farber's Mammography Van provides mammograms and breast heath education to women age 40 and older, regardless of their ability to pay. Find more information, including a schedule of visits to community health centers, and FAQs in Spanish and Kreyòl.
Engaging in moderate exercise has many benefits. Studies have shown that exercising for 30 minutes a day can reduce the risk of certain types of cancer.
Exercise also helps patients going through cancer treatment, by reducing pain and depression. Learn how an active lifestyle can benefit you.
