Bariatric Surgery Reduces Female Cancer Risk

Bariatric surgery reduces not only the incidence of overall cancer in obese women, as has been previously reported, but also the risk for female-specific cancers- as highlighted by a recent medscape news article by quoting a reputed Swedish study.

In particular, a significantly reduced risk for endometrial cancer is indicated by new results from the Swedish Obese Subjects (SOS) study. Findings were published in the May 2017 issue of Gynecologic Oncology.

The SOS study is an ongoing, nonrandomized, prospective controlled trial in which investigators aim to determine the long-term effects of bariatric surgery on multiple health endpoints.

After their surgery, SOS women lost a mean of 28.0 kg at 2 years, some of which was regained at 10 and 15 years’ follow-up, but the weight loss was still significant at approximately 21 kg at both 10 and 15 year follow up.

At a median follow-up of 18.1 years, investigators found that the risk of developing any cancer was 29% lower among women who had undergone bariatric surgery than those who hadn’t.

Besides cancer, Bariatric Surgery reverses/ prevents lifestyle diseases such as Diabetes (type2), heart disease, sleep apnea, arthritis etc.
