Expat health insurance policyholders should understand that cancer is not a product of fate.
This is the view of Dr Ian Lewis, head of research at cancer charity Tenovus, who said it is "concerning" that a proportion of individuals still see the disease as a chance event, despite various public campaigns.
"It has been estimated that around half of all cancers could actually be prevented if people made better lifestyle choices," he pointed out.
"This clearly demonstrates that we all need to work more closely with communities to come up with campaigns and health awareness programmes that are realistic, achievable and sustainable."
Expatriate healthcare insurance customers and other people who have the condition diagnosed at an earlier stage have a better chance of survival, so the emphasis should be on catching signs of cancer early.
Dr Lewis' comments follow a Cancer Research UK study indicating that one in three people believe developing the disease is down to fate and there are no steps they can take to avoid it.
