April is Cancer Control Month

April 1, 2019 by Molly Huff

April has been deemed Cancer Control Month by the U.S. Government.  This is a good time to look at your personal health and make time for the screenings that could save your life.  This year alone, an estimated half million Americans will lose their lives to cancer, and three times that many will be diagnosed with this devastating illness.

Cancer patients are anyone and everyone: parents and grandparents, children and friends.  The disease touches almost all of us. Yet, today, we stand at a critical moment in cancer research that promises significant advances for patients and an accelerated pace of lifesaving discoveries.  During National Cancer Control month this April, we remember those we have lost, support Americans fighting this disease, and recommit to progress toward effective cancer control.
 
Prevention and screening are our best defenses against cancer.  All Americans can reduce their risk by eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, limiting sun exposure, avoiding excessive alcohol consumption, living tobacco-free, and taking advantage of appropriate regularly scheduled cancer screenings.
 
The following cancer screenings can save your life - check with your physician to see when is the right time for you to proceed with the following screenings:
  • Breast Cancer (mammography and clinical breast exam)
  • Cervical and Vaginal Cancer (pap test and pelvic exam)
  • Prostate Cancer (PSA blood test and Digital Rectal Exam)
  • Colorectal Cancer

Be your own best advocate and talk with your doctor about preventative care and screenings.  Visit the American Cancer Society's website for more information on joining the fight against cancer.
