  The worldwide obesity epidemic is a growing public health problem. Obesity is associated with the development of many disorders such as insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression. Epidemiologic, clinical, and preclinical data suggest that various common types of cancer are affected by obesity and it was revealed a link between obesity and the more aggressive character of malignancy. Obesity is decided as an independent prognostic factor of recurrence and survival.
