February is Cancer Prevention Month.

Breast, lung and prostate cancer are the most common types of cancer.

For those with a family history of cancer, there are several preventative measures that can be taken including annual screenings and establishing a good relationship with a primary care doctor.

Other ways to prevent getting cancer include following a healthy lifestyle and reducing risk factors such as smoking.
