Cancer can affect almost all parts of the body, including the ear. The most likely form of cancer to affect the ear is skin cancer. If you have any concerns at all about your health, consult a doctor at the first opportunity.
Cancer is a disease that will affect half of all men and a third of all women in the US during their lifetime. It is therefore important that you are able to spot the early signs of cancer and seek medical advice.

Cancer in general is the all-encompassing term for more than 100 diseases, in which cells in a certain part of the human body begin to grow out of control. If allowed to go untreated, cancers will cause severe illness and even death.

Cancer can come in many forms, and can affect most parts of the body. In most cases the cancerous cells form a tumor, but some, such as Leukemia, affect the body's blood and blood-forming organs.

The most common types of cancer are:
  • Breast Cancer.
  • Colon/Rectum Cancer.
  • Lung Cancer.
  • Prostate Cancer.
  • Skin Cancer.
If you believe you may have cancer the first and foremost thing you should do is go visit a doctor, no amount of self diagnosis can compensate for real medical advice.

A number of small lifestyle changes can limit your chances of having cancer. These include.

  • Being healthy and active,
  • Partaking in regular physical exercise
  • Eating a nutritional and balanced diet.
Sunburn caused by harmful UV rays is one of the main contributors to skin cancer. Three simple words will help keep you safe in the sun - SLIP, SLAP, SLOP.
  1. SLIP on a shirt.
  2. SLAP on a hat.
  3. SLOP on some sunscreen.

  • Regular cancer screenings and medical check-ups with your doctor.
