April Is National Cancer Control Month

As the month of April brings cancer control into focus, it’s a great time to increase public understanding of screening and prevention of cancer, advances in treatment and support for cancer patients, and resources that offer updated cancer control information throughout the year.

With significant numbers of cancer deaths and new diagnoses projected for 2016 along with disease stabilization rates showing the efficacy of control measures, the case is strong for increased awareness of advances in screening, prevention, and treatment, as well as lifestyle choices (such as diet and exercise) that may prevent cancer and reduce recurrence risk.
