Cancer Prevention

By providing the latest information on risk factors that people can change, together
we can stop cancer before it starts, and help reduce the number of future cases in Manitoba.

The annual number of new cancer cases continues to rise in Manitoba. In 2016, 6,481 Manitobans were diagnosed with cancer, and in 2035 we expect to see about 10,000 new cancer cases – that’s an increase of over 50%.

There’s good news though - experts are now saying that for every 10 cases of cancer, 4 can be prevented
(in 2015, that was around 2,500 cancer cases in Manitoba that could have been prevented)!

These choices can reduce your risk of cancer by up to 50%.
