  • Cancer may affect anyone regardless of age, ethnicity or sex, however, some people are at greater risk than others. Part of cancer risk could include things outside a person’s control, like a family history of cancer and a genetic predisposition to cancer. However, there are cancer risk factors that are modifiable, meaning that these can be controlled by us. It is estimated that 30-50% of cancer cases may be preventable by modifying our lifestyles to reduce the risk. This means that there are simple things we can do to reduce our risk for cancer. This tool is intended to help highlight some of those areas where our behaviours can impact our cancer risk.
