Cancer Risks in your Environment
This page looks at some of the possible causes of an increased risk for developing cancer that may be found in our environment. Most environmental risks are extremely low and will only, potentially, affect a very small number of people. For some possible environmental risks the evidence is still unclear about whether there is a link with cancer. For other environmental risks there is clear evidence that shows a link with cancer.
