Cancer Prevention

cancer-preventionEvery year in Northern Ireland around 12,000 local people get the news that they have cancer. Thankfully two thirds survive but, sadly, we still lose more than 4,000 loved ones every year.

 

The good news is that up to 50% of cancers can be prevented if you maintain a healthy lifestyle, have regular checks and use screening services.

 

Cancer Focus NI has a wide range of cancer prevention services to help you, your family, friends and colleagues make better choices for healthy lifestyles.

 

We also have healthy living tips for you on:
