Our Cancer Prevention Team

40% of cancers could be prevented

4 out of 10 cancers could be caused by the way we live our lives, in particular by smoking, leading a sedentary lifestyle, eating an unhealthy diet, not taking sun-safety messages seriously and drinking too much alcohol. Getting the balance right doesn’t just reduce your risk from cancer but heart disease and type 2 diabetes too.

GP’s know that early diagnosis increases the odds of successful treatment.
Be aware of the body changes that are not normal for you and the symptoms that need to be checked by your doctor. Visit the symptoms and reduce your risk pages to find out more.

The specialist Cancer Prevention Team, visit schools, colleges, businesses, social clubs and community groups within the Three Counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, to discuss preventative measures and raise awareness of how early detection can improve outcomes. We provide these vital services completely free of charge.
