There is a common misconception that cancer only strikes the elderly, and that it could never happen to us. In actuality, cancer can affect anyone at any time. The key to decreasing a person's chances of incidence is prevention and early detection. Checkups and screenings will help you and your doctor identify health problems in their earliest stages. It is a good idea to see a doctor on a regular basis – even if you feel “fine." It is important to remember that no one is exempt from developing cancer.
