With summer's longer days, people may feel like they have more free time. Take advantage and get important cancer screenings if they are due. According to the latest report from the Health Information National Trends Survey, most Americans are not aware of when they should get cancer screening exams, such as mammograms and colonoscopies. Screening exams allow cancers to be diagnosed at the earliest stages and treated when treatment will be the most effective.

If detected early and treated appropriately, about one-third of cancers can be cured, according to the World Health Organization. While many recommended cancer screenings vary by age, all individuals should keep an eye on their skin and check for changes in moles, freckles, and other marks once a month.

Get Active! Enjoy physical fitness in beautiful summer weather.

Whether a person prefers hiking, swimming, taking nature walks, riding a bike, or playing outside with the kids, summer is an ideal time to increase physical activity. The impact of participating in the recommended 30 to 60 minutes of exercise at least five times a week could be life-saving. Studies show that more than 60 percent of Americans fail to routinely exercise, despite the fact that 25 to 30 percent of several major cancers, including colon, postmenopausal breast, endometrial, kidney, and esophageal cancers, may be due to obesity and lack of physical activity.

Use this summer's fun physical activities to achieve or maintain a healthy weight. To learn more about the importance of exercise in cancer prevention and how to incorporate it in a daily routine,
