In our previously study, we demonstrated an association between eczema and the risk of glioma. Our results revealed that eczema significantly reduced the risk of glioma. Here, we review related published data to investigate the association between allergic diseases and the risk of cancer. We also discuss the potential mechanism of how allergic diseases might modify the risk of cancer.
