Screening and Risk Reduction
You cannot change your genes, but you can change some things in your life to lower your chances of getting certain cancers.
Secondary cancers are new cancers that are unrelated to a cancer you have previously had. Cancer survivors are at increased risk for a second cancer.
Cancer screening is looking for cancer before a person has any symptoms. Some cancers can be found early before they have a chance to grow and spread.
Genetic testing is often based on personal or family history of disease.
