THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN OBESITY AND CANCER

 

Obesity invites many diseases as a result of the increase in weight along with the fat ratio in the body. This is why the diagnosis and treatment process of obesity, which can cause diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cancer, especially cardiovascular diseases, is very important. While obesity also causes metabolic changes, thanks to the development of technology, cancer diagnosis can be made in a short time. While it is stated in the studies that obesity has reached serious figures in the last 30 years, it should not be forgotten that it causes coronary heart diseases, diabetes, stroke and high blood pressure. Obesity, which causes uterine, breast, stomach, kidney and colon cancers in women, can cause pancreatic, prostate, gallbladder, kidney and stomach cancers in men.

 

DOES OBESITY INCREASE THE RISK OF CANCER?

Obesity increases the risk of cancer. Because this disease brings hormonal and metabolic changes with it. In addition, fat cells in obese individuals trigger the formation of cancer by transferring some hormones to the blood. In a study conducted by the World Health Organization, it was stated that obesity, which starts due to physical inadequacy, can cause colon and breast cancer at a rate of 25 percent in women. In addition, ovarian cancer is among the important diseases that can be seen due to obesity.

 

 

OBESITY AND BREAST CANCER

 

Obesity, which can trigger breast cancer, occurs with an increase in adipose tissue in the abdomen and hips. In addition, women have a lower risk of developing cancer during menopause. However, after this period, the probability of cancer increases in obese women. Since the estrogen hormone produced by the increase in adipose tissue will become sensitive after menopause, tumor formation can be observed in the breast. Therefore, the relationship between obesity and cancer should be followed closely and necessary tests should be done on time.

 

OBESITY AND UTERİNE CANCER

In studies conducted to date, the relationship between obesity and the inner surface of the uterus has been proven. However, although the exact cause cannot be explained, excessive increase in estrogen hormone can cause uterine cancer.

 

OBESITY AND COLON CANCER

Women with high estrogen hormones have a greater risk of developing cancer. Colon cancer, which is also seen in men, can usually occur due to an imbalance between hormones. Obese individuals between the ages of 30-55, on average, are more likely to develop colon cancer.

 

OBESITY AND STOMACH – ESPIRAL CANCER

It should not be forgotten that obesity can cause stomach and esophageal cancer. In addition, colon cancer can occur due to excessive lubrication. As can be seen, it should not be forgotten that many conditions related to the obesity-cancer relationship can lead to cancer.
