Diabetes and Cancer

People with diabetes are at higher risk for some, but not all, forms of cancer. The relationship between the two diseases is complex and surrounded by unanswered questions. Diabetes is associated with increased risk for some cancers (liver, pancreas, endometrium, colon and rectum, breast, bladder). Diabetes is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. For some other cancer sites, there appears to be no association or the evidence is inconclusive. We hope this session to address some important questions about the meaningful association between diabetes and cancer incidence or prognosis.
