What is it?
Cancer is a condition where cells in a specific part of the body grow and reproduce uncontrollably. The cancerous cells can invade and destroy surrounding healthy tissue, including organs.
There are more than 200 different types of cancer, and each is diagnosed and treated in a particular way.
1 in 2 people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime. In the UK, the 4 most common types of cancer are:
- breast cancer
- lung cancer
- prostate cancer
- bowel cancer
Reducing your risk of cancer
Making some simple changes to your lifestyle can significantly reduce your risk of developing cancer. These changes include taking regular exercise.
