Washington: People who are obese may be at an increased risk of developing the most common type of kidney cancer, according to a new study.
The researchers concluded that BMI is an independent predictor of clear cell RCC and that as BMI increases, the odds of having this type of kidney cancer also increase. “Although we still need to find out more about the pathology of clear cell RCC, this study is useful as it provides individual predictors of the chance of developing this form of cancer. Of these, obesity provides the strongest association,” Lowrance said. The findings of the study are published in the urology journal, BJUI. (ANI)
