Prevention Week 17 to 23 September 2018

Save the date: Prevention week returns Monday 17 September 2018.

Get ready, as Prevention Week returns from Monday 17 to Sunday 23 September 2018 and this year we’re planning even more ways for you to get involved and take action for prevention.

An opportunity to shine the light on breast cancer prevention.

At Breast Cancer UK, we believe more can be done to prevent breast cancer.

1 in 8 women in the UK will be diagnosed with breast cancer.  1 in 5 will be under 50 years old.

Imagine if we could prevent some of these people from ever hearing the words ‘you have breast cancer’.

Sadly not all breast cancers are preventable. Yet at least 1 in 4 breast cancer cases each year in the UK could be prevented.

Breast Cancer UK is the only UK charity focused on the prevention of breast cancer by campaigning to reduce risk.

Understanding what increases your risk of breast cancer will help you to make simple lifestyle changes to reduce your risk.

Reducing the amount of alcohol you drink, improving your diet, increasing the amount of exercise you do and reducing your exposure to harmful chemicals will help reduce your risk.

Get informed, reduce your risk and make a change!

Take a look at the Reduce Your Risk section here for tips and advice on how to reduce your risk.

Help spread our prevention message – tell your family, friends and colleagues.

In the coming weeks we will be uploading lots of sharable content for you to share with your friends and family, so bookmark this page.

In the meantime, you can stay in the know by signing up to our newsletter to stay up to date with what's happening in Prevention Week.

Together we can prevent breast cancer.
