One of the best way to fight cancer is to prevent it, or even just by discovering it early, that is why early screening is important for many types of cancer.  So here are some guidelines provided by the American Cancer Society to help you understand more about the different time interval and age that you should begin screening.  For seniors and elderly, as long as they are in good health, these screenings should still be performed. In the case for breast cancer, mammograms and clinical breast exam should begin at around age 40 every year. For those younger, a clinical breast exam should be done every three years.  Beginning at age 50, screening for colorectal cancer and polyps are recommended to both gender.  Lastly, reduce your risk by staying away from tobacco, regular exercises, and eat healthy with plenty of fruits and vegetables.  But all in all, have an open discussion with your doctor about the type of screenings that is right for you or your loved ones, and live a healthy lifestyle.

As we age, our bones become more delicate and bodies become less resilient. Although it may not seem important initially, according to mayoclinic, the majority of injury causes in older persons are due to falls. Scheduling an appointment with your doctor to create a fall prevention plan may diminish the likelihood of facing future physical obstacles. Discussing certain medications and physical conditions with you doctor can contribute to preventing falls. Additionally, it is key to continually exercise and build strength, coordination, and flexibility.
