Obese men are at a higher risk for Prostate Cancer, even after an initial benign biopsy.
Columbia University researchers followed a group of men after they had a prostate biopsy with non-cancerous results. Obese men were more likely to have pre-cancerous lesions in their biopsy than men who maintained a healthy weight.
After 14 years, those who were obese at the time of the biopsy were 57% more likely to have developed prostate cancer.
