NCI Cancer Risk Website: multiple types of information, link

Recommended Posts

It is estimated that about one-half of all men and one-third of all women in the U.S. will develop cancer in their lifetime.

- However, advances in prevention, early detection, and treatment have improved cancer outcomes.

- There are things you and your family can do to stay healthy and reduce your risk for developing some cancers.

NCI's interactive Web site, Cancer Risk: Understanding the Puzzle, can help you assess and understand your risk of developing cancer. The Web site contains explanations of cancer risk, risk factors, and risk exposure - along with information on how to lower risk - for six cancers.

The site also contains a section on analyzing news stories about cancer to help people determine the accuracy and applicability of findings reported in the media and on the Web. Links to numerous sources of information, as well as online quizzes to test readers' understanding of cancer risk, also appear on the site.

Get the plain and simple truth about cancer risk and what it means for you.
