Can Obesity and Overweight Together During Menopause Promote Breast Cancer Growth and Progression?

Friday, December 14th, 2012

Recent research published in Cancer Research concluded that obese women might be able to eliminate their increased risk of postmenopausal breast cancer by preventing weight gain during perimenopause and therapeutically controlling the metabolic effects of their obesity. They said “Obese postmenopause women have increased risk for breast cancer and poorer clinical outcomes compared with postmenopausal women who are lean.” “Unfortunately you cannot do the studies needed to address this issue in humans. So, we merged rat models of obesity, breast cancer, and menopause to best mimic the events that link premenopausal obesity to an increase rate of postmenopausal  breast cancer.”

Building on previous research they confirmed that obesity and overfeeding after surgical ovariectomy together drove agressive tumor growth and progression. They also discuss the reasons for the difference seen in lean and obese rats and tumor development. They concluded “If our findings in rats translate to humans, it means that the perimenopausal  period is a critical window of time for determining breast cancer risk later in life.”” This, in turn, means that an obese woman’s risk for postmenopausal breast cancer and poor clinical outcome could be reduced by perimenopausal lifestyle modification, such as restricting food consumption and increasing execise, and/or perimenopausal use of drugs, such as metformin, to improve metabolic control.”  Research is ongoing.

Starting Hormone Therapy Near Menopause May Increase Risk of Breast Cancer

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011


A new research study published in the January 28 online issue of The Journal of the National Cancer Institute found that there is a greater risk of breast cancer when starting hormone therapy around the time of menopause as opposed to starting five years of more after menopause. This adds to the knowledge from previous studies that looked at hormone replacement as increasing the risk of breast cancer without considering the timing around menopause. Some of these were previously presented on this blog.
The current study was a large prospective study with a cohort of women (1.13 million) in which the researchers estimated the adjusted relative risk of breast cancer in hormone therapy users and past users, compared to non-users. They also looked at the type of hormone therapy used. They found that those who started hormone therapy 5 or more years following menopause had little or no risk of breast cancer regardless of type of hormone therapy used. the length of time used, and whether or not they were obese. They also found that women who started hormone therapy at menopause were at greater risk than those who started it later.
