Some Cancers Can Be Prevented By Reducing The Risk Factors

Some risk factors of cancer cannot be modified. These include: Age: Some cancers become more prevalent with age. Genetics: Some people have a genetic predisposition for cancer, i.e. they are born with a genetically inherited high risk for a specific cancer. Weakened immune system: Immunocompromised patients including those have had organ transplants and take drugs to suppress their immune systems to stop organ rejection, people who have HIV or AIDS, or other medical conditions which reduce their immunity to disease are more at risk of developing some types of cancer.

Various factors can contribute to the development of cancer. Some of these causal factors can be modified to reduce the risk.
