Endometrial cancer prevention

Recent reports show, about 60 per cent of endometrial cancer cases are preventable, which is no doubt an interesting and surprising news. Before looking into the issue in detail let’s know what is an endometrial cancer is. Endometrial cancer, is a cancer of endometrium. Endometrium is the innermost  lining of uterus. When this lining is affected by cancer, we refer it as an endometrial cancer.

Now coming back to our discussion. There are two body hormones, which are related to endometrial cancer, namely estrogen and insulin. If their levels in blood rise the risk of cancer rises. Excessive body fat rises the formation of excess estrogen therefore contributing in occurrence of the cancer. On the other hand, excess diet with high glycaemic index like highly sugary diets can increase the cancer risk too. The combined effects may rise estrogen and insulin levels in blood and cause cancer.

Henceforth, efforts to decrease the body fat and high sugary diets, may aid in reducing the risk of cancer. In addition, consuming coffee may be beneficial, since coffee is rich in antioxidants, which too are said to provide some sort of cancer protection.
