Survivors of Ovarian, Prostate and Other Cancers

There are now more people surviving and living well after cancer treatment than ever before. Early detection and improved treatments have led to a growing community of cancer survivors.

Decades of research have resulted in clear recommendations for reducing the risk of many cancers, including ovarian and prostate cancers. There is less research focusing on lifestyle’s impact on survivorship, yet it is a fast-growing area of study.

Recommendations for Survivors

After treatment, AICR recommends that cancer survivors follow our recommendations for cancer prevention when and if you are able to do so. These recommendations also reduce the risk of other chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. 

AICR's Recommendations for Cancer Prevention

Based on the global review of the research, here are the steps linked to lower risk of the most common cancers.

Resources that can help

AICR is here to help throughout your treatment and after it is completed.

AICR's CancerResource: Living with Cancer is a handbook on eating and being active both during and after treatment. It was developed with an Advisory Committee of experts.
