This is the most common female cancer and here’s how, where and its recurrence can recur. Today we will instead see the 2 most common cancers in Italy in the age group between 40 and 60 years. The statistics obviously come from official sources and are more than reliable. Therefore, removing breast cancer from the classification, let’s see the other two cancers that most affect Italians in this age group.
A very lifestyle-related cancer
Unfortunately, even today, despite the efforts of science and research, there are some cancers that are not 100% linked to actual causes. There are also cancers, such as that of the colorectal, which have strong contributing causes with the lifestyle we lead. As oncologists always remind us, we must remember not to exceed the consumption of red meats and cured meats. But also all the products derived from flour, sugars, fats and many industrial products full of dyes. The avoidance of smoking and excess alcohol is also fundamental in the prevention of this type of cancer. And, equally important is maintaining a correct weight by doing physical activity and sports.
According to data provided by Istat, colorectal cancer is in second place for male but also female mortality. Today, thanks to prevention and treatment, surviving over the years is less rare, so much so that about 60% of patients are alive 5 years after the discovery of the tumor.

Another very common tumor that can unfortunately be linked to our habits is that of the lung. Almost 90% of lung cancers are attributable to smoking, but also to smog and possible sources of pollution. In fact, we recall that according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, exposure to air pollution is considered carcinogenic. Just as according to international studies, if we do these jobs we could be more exposed to cancer.
Lung cancer is considered to be the first most common cause of cancer death in Italy. And, unfortunately, the increase in women smokers is not a positive factor. Surely also for this tumor, the health of the affected organs is primary. So, to facilitate lung well-being, let’s remember to take lots of fruit and vegetables, with lots of fiber and vitamins. But even in this case, sporting activity is fundamental.
These 2 daily habits increase the risk of getting this cancer by 100 times
