Breast Cancer In Situ: Managing Your Medical Care: Diagnosis To Treatment Decision

A Cancer Prevention Lifestyle Helps

Next » « Previous


A lifestyle known as a cancer preventive lifestyle helps people gain a sense of control and empowerment. It may also help get your body into the best condition to fight cancer.

  • Eat nutritiously
  • Get exercise - it doesn't have to be in a  gym
  • Get rest and appropriate sleep.
  • Take care of your mouth. Mounting evidence indicates that poor oral care can worsen serious medical problems. This is a good time to schedule a dental check up to take care of any potential problems before treatment begins.
  • If you smoke use your diagnosis as a wake up call to quit.
  • Avoid excessive use of alcohol.
  • Try to keep a positive attitude. We're not suggesting you become a pollyanna. Work at keeping the focus on the half full side of the glass.
  • Think about getting a pet. It doesn't have to be a dog or a cat to help you feel better. If you act as a foster parent for a local shelter, you can have a pet for the short term.
