Prevention of Adenocarcinoma

While the specific cause of cancer is still unknown, doctors say reducing patients’ risk of cancer can help in preventing adenocarcinomas. These are a few of the prevention techniques doctors at Florida Hospital recommend to maintain healthy, active lifestyles:

  • Get regular screenings to catch tumors before they become cancerous and spread
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Stop smoking
  • Stay active/exercise
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Manage health conditions such as Crohn’s disease that may cause damage to the body
  • Consider that effects of hormone replacement therapy and birth control pills
  • Speak to your doctor regarding aspirin regiments and other medications that may inflame the GI tract.
  • Get genetic screening to determine your risk of inheriting cancer

Stay vigilant for cancer. Even when these prevention techniques do not work, early detection is key to successful treatment.
