Monitor Your Body For Early Cancer Detection

To detect cancer early, you must monitor your body regularly for any abnormalities

Cancer grows 24/7. Monitoring your body helps detect cancer signs and symptoms between scheduled doctor visits, screenings, and testings. (2) Monitoring your body should take no longer than 10 minutes – a small investment in time that could save your life! (64) 

No one knows your body as well as you do; therefore, you should notice changes easily. Monitoring your body should cover your entire body with special emphasis on the body parts listed here.

Many cancers if detected and treated at an early stage can be cured. According to the American Cancer Society, detecting cancer early may increase survival rate to 93.6% for many cancers. (1)
