Postmenopausal bleeding may be a sign of endometrial cancer in obese Asian women

A new study shows that a lower threshold for body mass index could indicate an increase in the risk of endometrial carcinoma in certain Asian women.CLEVELAND (June 30, 2021).--Obesity and endometrial cancer risk have been well documented. New research has shown that Asian women experiencing postmenopausal bleeding may be at greater risk if their body mass index (BMI), is lower than previously believed. The study results were published online in Menopause (the journal of The North American Menopause Society) today.Endometrial carcinoma is the sixth most prevalent form of cancer among women in the world. It is also a leading cause for cancer death. Endometrial cancer is not currently screened routinely in women who are symptomatic. Healthcare professionals need to be aware that there may be additional risk factors. This will allow them to intervene quickly.Researchers used the Asian BMI standard (BMI) for obesity in this study. 25 kg/m2) to assess the relationship between BMI (Birds Mass Index) and endometrial cancer diagnosis in Asian women. Asian women are considered obese at a lower level than white women. The study focused on women who experienced postmenopausal bleeding because nearly 90% of women diagnosed with endometrial carcinoma after menopause.The study's results showed that Asian women who have a BMI greater than 25kg/m2 are 1.57 times more likely (57%) to develop endometrial carcinoma. These results should be alarming to healthcare professionals and warn them to be extra vigilant when treating Asian women who have postmenopausal hemorhage.The article "Obesity raises endometrial cancer risk among Chinese women with postmenopausal hemorrhage" publishes the results.This study demonstrates the relationship between BMI (Body Mass Index) and endometrial carcinoma. It suggests that the Asian BMI standard is appropriate for obesity (?). Endometrial cancer can be detected in Asian women who have postmenopausal bleeding. This is because 25 kg/m2 (25 kg/m2) is the recommended BMI standard for obesity. The key takeaways from this are that women who have experienced postmenopausal bleeding need to be evaluated. Obesity remains a risk factor for endometrial carcinoma, with a linear relationship between BMI risk and endometrial risk."
