February is National Cancer Prevention Month. CDC is a leader in efforts to prevent and find cancers early and is dedicated to help you stay healthy and lower your risk. Cancer prevention may seem like one big effort, but it’s important to know that there are different ways you can help prevent cancer. Get vaccinated. Some cancers are caused by viruses such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and the Hepatitis B virus. The HPV vaccine can help prevent several cancers including cervical cancer. Hepatitis B vaccine helps prevent infection in the liver that can lead to liver cancer.

Make healthy choices. For most cancers, healthy choices such as not smoking (or quitting if you do), staying active and keeping a healthy weight, and protecting your skin from the sun can be your best chance to lower your risk of cancer. Get recommended screenings. Cancer screenings are an important part of preventing cancer and can help find cancer early to successfully treat it.
