Weight Loss Surgery and Cancer Risk Reduction

The impact of obesity on cancer risk is well-documented, with numerous studies linking obesity and overweight to an increased likelihood of developing certain types of cancer.

Excess body weight increases insulin resistance, leading the pancreas to overproduce insulin, which can in turn promote the growth of cancer cells.

A healthy weight reduces your risk of 11 different cancers including bowel, oesophagus, liver, and stomach, making weight loss surgery a powerful tool to reduce cancer risk and take proactive measures.

  • Maintaining a healthy weight decreases cancer risk and improves overall health outcomes.
  • Weight loss addresses multiple factors contributing to cancer development, such as chronic inflammation, hormonal imbalances, and insulin resistance.
  • Sustained weight loss offers comprehensive health benefits that contribute to cancer prevention and long-term well-being.
