Obese and overweight women are more likely to experience breast cancer recurrence compared to women of normal weight, regardless of the type of cancer treatment they received, researchers reported in the journal Cancer.Why make your mammaries, memories?
Joseph Sparano, MD, of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine's Montefiore Medical Center, New York, and team explained that the patient does not necessarily have to be obese, she may be just within what is considered as overweight. He added that the higher recurrence risk is for the most common type of cancer.
The authors believe that excess body fat may trigger hormonal changes and inflammation that encourage the spread and recurrence of cancer, despite the type of treatment that was administered.
