Abdominal Obesity May Be Associated With Colon Cancer Risk

Waist circumference and a person's waist-to-hip ratio were linked to an increased risk of colon cancer, a new study suggests.

Tobias Pischon, M.D., of the German Institute of Human Nutrition in Potsdam, and colleagues examined the link between abdominal obesity and colon and rectal cancer in 368,277 subjects from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition. The subjects were followed for an average of 6.1 years.

The authors identified 984 patients with colon cancer and 586 patients with rectal cancer. A large waist, high waist-to-hip ratio, and height were associated with an increased risk of colon cancer in both men and women. In men, high weight and body mass index were also associated with increased risk of colon cancer.

Rates of Ocular Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Have Increased, Study Finds

Incidence of ocular non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a cancer of the eye and nearby organs, is increasing rapidly and has shown no signs of peaking, a new study reports.

Roxana Moslehi, Ph.D., of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., and colleagues assessed the incidence of ocular non-Hodgkin lymphoma using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program.

The authors found that the incidence of ocular non-Hodgkin lymphoma increased from 1975 to 2001 at 6.2% per year among white men and 6.5% per year among white women. Rates during 1992-2001 were highest among Asians and Pacific Islanders, followed by whites, while blacks had the lowest rates.
