Obesity and Oncology

The link between obesity and risk for several types of cancer is now well established by more than a decade of scientific research. Overweight or obesity is responsible for nearly 25% of the relative contribution to cancer incidence, which ranks second only to tobacco use. Obesity is strongly tied to many of the most common types of cancers, including post-menopausal breast cancer, colorectal cancer and cancers of the endometrium, kidney, thyroid and gallbladder. However, evidence is less convincing and somewhat controversial for prostate cancer, lung cancer and pre-menopausal breast cancer; several studies report an inverse relationship between obesity and these particular cancers.
