WorldCancerDay, WeCanICan, #SportAgainstCancer #ActiveLife #MoveForHealth #BeActive #PlayAgainstCancer #HealthyLiving #HealthForAll #HealthyLifestyle #BeHealthy #Healthy #SupportThroughSport #Movember – A whole collection of messages of prevention and support to fight cancer that all the La Tour teams will be sending between 30 January and 4 February in honour of World Cancer Day.


Lifestyle changes are exposing an increasing number of people to risk factors for cancer. Smoking, poor diet and sedentary habits are factors we can all do something about. Our institution includes La Tour Hospital, Carouge Clinic and the Meyrin Medical Centre. It is playing a major role in prevention by raising patient awareness on the links between cancer and lifestyle.

From prevention and screening to surgical and medical treatments, every year La Tour treats an average of 470 new cases in the fields of the respiratory system, digestive system, breast cancer, gynaecology, urology, ENT and thorax illnesses and dermatology.
