These symptoms depend on where it has originated from, its size and its spread.

After looking at all the cancer signs and symptoms, isn't it simpler to stay away from the risks of cancer? It has been researched and accepted that the chances of developing cancer are affected by the lifestyle choices we make. Let's discuss some easy lifestyle changes that can make a big difference.

1. Healthy Lifestyle and Immunization:

Over 30% of cancers can be prevented by a healthy life style or by immunization against cancer causing infections (Hepatitis B Virus, Human papillomavirus (HPV))

2. Avoid Tobacco:

For cancer prevention, it is important to keep yourself from the risk factors of cancer. Tobacco and smoking being the major risk factor has been linked to a variety of cancer types for example: lung cancer. Opting for rehabilitation centers could also help you in quitting smoking or chewing tobacco.

3. Follow a Healthy Diet:

Although following a healthy diet cannot guarantee cancer prevention, it could help in reducing the cancer risk. A healthy diet could consist of plenty of fruits and vegetables. You can avoid all the high-calorie foods, including refined sugars that could make you obese. You can also take control over your alcohol drinking habits to avoid cancers of liver, breast, colon, lung, and kidney.

4. Maintain a Healthy Weight and Staying Physically Active:

You could lower the risk of various types of cancer, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer and kidney cancer.

5. Getting Regular Checkup:

It is extremely important to go for preventive health checkup or cancer screening to ensure one's health status. As cancer is one of the silent diseases, you might not even notice any symptoms initially. Also, cancer detection done at early cancer stages stands a fair chance of being cured.

Preventing cancer is possible, but it requires proper diet, exercise and healthy habits. Furthermore, you can tackle cancer with the help of a suitable preventive health checkup. You can go for Indus Health Plus' Master Health Checkup that will help you understand the current status of the body. The doctors can start further treatment if there are any complications.
