What chemicals are linked to cancer?

Screening tests look for certain cancers, even before there are symptoms. Early detection of cancer makes it easier to treat, and increases chances of survival. Some screening tests, like colonoscopy, help prevent cancer, by finding and removing conditions that may lead to cancer.

There are also ways to reduce your risk for cancer, through healthy lifestyle choices and avoiding cancer-causing chemicals in your environment, home and even in your cosmetics. Learn more.

A few cancers can even be prevented, like cervical cancer or some cases of skin cancer and ovarian cancer.
