Types of cancer
There are many different types of cancer, but this section looks at the 14 types of cancer where there is some evidence that risk is affected by diet, physical activity and weight.
For each type of cancer, we explain which lifestyle factors are related to this type of cancer and how they relate to our 10 Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.
It is important to emphasise that these Recommendations, which come from our Second Expert Report, are a package of measures that can reduce your risk of cancer overall, rather than any being especially targeted at any specific type of cancer.
