The incidence of cancer can be reduced through healthy lifestyle choices and understanding possible exposures in homes, workplaces and the environment that may increase the risk of developing cancer. Learn more about cancer, learn how to reduce risk, and take part in cancer screening programs. Being self-aware is also important when it comes to early detection of cancer. Report changes to a health care provider right away.


Overall, the residents of the Algoma District face a slightly greater risk of cancer, especially lung cancer. This rate can be reduced. To learn more, please read Algoma Cancer Report 2015.
