Women, Diabetes, & cancer

The remarkable similarity of lifestyle and environmental risk factors for type 2 (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus and colon cancer has led to the hypothesis that diabetes may increase the risk of this cancer. Some observational studies have suggested an increased risk of breast cancer (BC) among diabetic patients. A meta-analysis was performed to assess the risk of BC in diabetic patients compared to nondiabetic patients.
