Obesity is associated with increased risk of breast and other cancers. However, the complexity of the underlying mechanisms, together with the interplay of diet and physical activity - contributing to energy balance - and the role of adipose tissue, pose challenges to our understanding of the basis of this increased risk. Epidemiologic studies have documented a higher obesity prevalence in US African-American (AA) and Hispanic women compared to Caucasian women. Elucidation of the contribution of...

Objectives Overdiagnosis, diagnosis of a cancer that would not ultimately cause symptoms or death, has become relatively common in a variety of cancers, including thyroid cancer (ThCa). The trend of ThCa incidence, which has increased substantially without a corresponding change in mortality, typifies overdiagnosis. An analysis of Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program data has suggested that overdiagnosis may be responsible for up to 60% of diagnosed papillary ThCa cases, th...

Obesity, a cause of subclinical inflammation, is a risk factor for the development of postmenopausal breast cancer (BC) and is associated with poorer cancer outcomes. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid, possesses anti-inflammatory properties. We hypothesized that treatment with DHA would reduce the expression of proinflammatory genes and aromatase, the rate-limiting enzyme for estrogen biosynthesis, in benign breast tissue of overweight/obese women. A randomized, placebo-controlle...

IntroductionRenal cancer incidence has increased markedly in the United States in recent decades, largely due to incidentally detected tumours from computed tomography imaging. Here, we analyze the potential for low-dose computed tomography lung cancer screening to detect renal cancer.MethodsThe National Lung Screening Trial randomized subjects to three annual screens with either low-dose computed tomography or chest X-ray. Eligibility criteria included 30 + pack-years, current smoking or quit w...
