Obesity and Breast Cancer Are Associated

, Obesity and Breast Cancer Are AssociatedObesity continues to be a major topic of discussion for medical professionals everywhere. The CDC recently released their report on cancer and felt the need to highlight the close relationship between breast cancer risk and obesity. According to a recent HealthDay online article the focus of this report was obesity and the  relationship with on cancer. “That’s important, because we don’t think the public is aware of that,” Dr. Marcus Plescia, director of CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control said.

Obesity is Considered a National Health Concern

Obesity is at the root of some cancers that have increased. Six of the cancers have substantial evidence of a relationship between obesity and cancer: esophageal, kidney, pancreatic, endometrial, and colorectal and breast cancer, he noted. According to the report, the rate of new cancer diagnoses among men dropped an average of 0.6 percent per year between 2004 and 2008. For women, the rate of cancer dropped 0.5 percent per year from 1998 to 2006, but has leveled off since 2006, the researchers found. The majority of the declines in cancer have been in lung, breast, colon and prostate cancer. Notwithstanding, cancers of the esophagus, kidney, pancreas, liver and thyroid have been on the rise, as well as endometrial cancer, the researchers discovered. The increase in these cancers seems to be largely due to the increase in obesity, Plescia said. The absence of physical activity is also linked closely with these cancers, he noted.

Obesity and  Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

It is inevitable that obesity would creep into the cause of many diseases we have fought over the decades. Breast cancer appears to be no exception. Dr. Seify advises all patients to maintain a healthy diet and a healthy and stable weight. While body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty and liposuction are not weight loss procedures; per se, it is important for patients to recognize that addressing slight increases in weight especially after pregnancy with body contouring procedures can help patients maintain a healthy and stable weight. Few would dispute the fact that when a woman feels good about how she looks and her contour is attractive, she is less likely to add on additional pounds. Some patients mistakenly believe that they should address their body contouring concerns once they have exhausted every other possibility, in their mind, to lose the weight. The reality is if the weight consist of stubborn hormonal weight fat depots it can be very difficult and discouraging to attempt to improve body contour with weight loss alone. Dr. Seify is able to target specific areas expertly and achieve amazing results. Obesity is a concern in the US population; however ,patients must understand that no one becomes obese overnight. It happens over time. Making the decision to be proactive about maintaining your best appearance and stable weight is the best way to ensure that obesity will not be part of your future.
