Primary prevention of cancer by health education is important. People should be educated regarding the hazards of tobacco consumption for prevention of oral cancer and the necessity of genital hygiene for prevention of cervical cancer. More attention should be paid towards secondary prevention like early detection and diagnosis of cancer.
