I am seeing a lot of buzz recently about prevention, but not many people noting that not everything is preventable. Thanks Dr. Stockerl-Goldstein.

In brief: Not clear

Burkitt lymphoma is caused by epstein barr virus (ebv) in association with geographic issues like malaria infections, genetic susceptibility etc.
There is no vaccine for ebv and there are no generally agreed upon measures to prevent burkitt lymphoma.

In brief: Nothing specific

Burkitt lymphoma (bl) is a highly aggressive b-cell neoplasm that can present in one of three distinct clinical forms: endemic, sporadic, and immunodeficiency-associated there is nothing specific that you can do to prevent it especialy for the sporadic type.
What you can do is to do healthy lifestyle/habit and try to prevent yourself from getting the acquired immunodeficiencydisease such as hiv.
