While we still don’t know why young people get many of the cancers that affect them, there are some that are preventable. The HPV vaccine prevents ovarian cancers and research suggests that it will also prevent genital, oral, and throat cancers. Many skin cancers can be prevented by sun protection and sun bed regulation. A heathy diet and exercise are increasingly recognized as important factors in cancer prevention. Screening programs for cancers such as breast and colon can detect cancer and precancerous conditions. Young people who have had cancer may need earlier and more frequent screening for secondary cancers and other health risks such as heart disease. If you have a question or a concern make it a priority to have your self checked out.
