Lifestyle tips to reduce your risks:
Don’t use tobacco. If you do, ask your doctor or nurse about quitting and cessation classes in your area.
- Protect yourself from the sun by wearing sunscreen with SPF, avoiding sunlight in the peak hours of the day, and wearing light clothing to protect your skin.
- Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and only small amounts of red meat and high-fat dairy products.
- Learn about your body composition and maintain a healthy weight.
- Consume alcohol in moderation, if you drink at all.
- Get at least 30 minutes of physical activity on five days of the week or more.
