15. Know yourself and your family history

Routine self-exams are one of the most important things you can do for early cancer detection. Knowing your body will help you understand when things aren’t right. Also, since cancer is highly due to genetics, it’s even more important to know your family history. Have conversations with members of your family and write down any medical history of cancer related problems. Keep the information where you can access it easily when talking with your health care professional.
