Ovarian Cancer Survival Rate Lower in Obese Women – Fat Tissue Excrete Hormone or Protein Causing Aggressive Growth

Obese women have a lower survival rate for ovarian cancer according to researchers from California. This is the first study to identify weight as an independent factor for ovarian cancer in disease progression and overall survival.

Dr. Andrew Li says that the study suggests “that there is an element in the fat tissue itself that influences the outcome of this disease in obese women.” Li is the study’s principal investigator at Cedars-Sinai’s Women’s Cancer Research Institute at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute.
