Association between BMI and colorectal cancer risk

the ONA take:

High pre-diagnosis body mass index (BMI) was associated with increased mortality among patients with colorectal cancer, a new study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention has shown.

For the study, researchers sought to evaluate the association between BMI and colorectal cancer survival. Researchers analyzed data from 5,615 men and women diagnosed with invasive colorectal cancer who were followed for an average of 5.9 years.

Results showed that high pre-diagnosis BMI was associated with a higher risk of all-cause mortality. The risk of death did not significantly vary by sex, location of cancer, or BRAF mutation status.

According to the National Cancer Institute, previous research has demonstrated that a higher BMI is strongly associated with an increased risk for colorectal cancer among men. A strong association between BMI and waist circumference with colon cancer has been observed in men, with a weaker association observed in women.

High pre-diagnosis body mass index (BMI) was associated with increased mortality among patients with colorectal cancer.
We evaluated the association between BMI and colorectal cancer survival, overall and by strata of MSI, BRAF mutation, sex, and other factors.
