What is Cancer Prevention Action Week?

Cancer Prevention Action Week is an annual event where we raise awareness of cancer and cancer prevention, and encourage you to take action.

About 1,100 people are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK, but 40% of all cancer cases could be prevented.

Knowing what you need to do and making small, consistent changes to the lives of you and your loved ones can help you avoid preventable cancers.
