Cancer is a generic term for over 100 diseases that can affect any part of the body. Up to 40% of cancer cases can be prevented by avoiding exposure to known carcinogens such as tobacco smoke. Many types of cancer have a high chance of being cured if detected early and treated appropriately. In 2019-2021, World Cancer Day is held with the campaign theme "I Am and I Will."
