More about this Webinar

Whilst more research is needed, current research does suggest that maintaining or adopting a healthy lifestyle can reduce the chance of your cancer coming back or a new cancer developing. A healthy lifestyle includes things such as eating a healthy diet, being physically active, maintaining a healthy body weight, improving your psychological wellbeing, protecting yourself from the sun, stopping smoking or cutting down on alcohol.


Some people who have had a cancer diagnosis may also experience an increased risk of other chronic health problems. Adopting a healthy lifestyle can also help prevent chronic health problems, such as heart disease or type 2 diabetes.


This webinar will look at prevention after your cancer treatment and will provide a range of practical strategies you can adopt to help to prevent your cancer coming back. Including regular health checks, adopting a healthy lifestyle, protecting yourself from the sun and more.
