 Aggressive Prostate Cancer Risk Increased in Men Who Gain Weight During Adulthood

Putting on weight during adult life can increase the risk of aggressive prostate cancer among men, a new study reveals.

Researchers from University of Melbourne in Australia observed more than 17,000 men aged between 40 to 69 years and found that the risk of deaths due to prostate cancer increased among those who put on an additional 20 kgs or more during their adult life.

"'This study and other similar studies have shown that obesity is related to aggressive and fatal cancer," Dallas English, co-author the study told the Sydney Morning Herald. "'Maintaining a healthy weight during adult life is really the bottom line."

The study is published in the latest issue of the International Journal of Cancer
