Summary of Cancer Clusters

Cancer clusters are not common in the United States and determining the existence of such a cluster is extremely difficult. The vast array of cancers coupled with the large quantity of new cases, make cancer a very common disease.

The significance of cancer clusters should not be dismissed however there are very few proven cases in medical history. The most important information for individuals regarding cancer is healthy living, early detection and cancer screenings.

Taking the time to know and understand the controllable risk factors for cancer can help individuals prevent the disease in their lifetime.
