Extra Weight Increases Risk For Breast Cancer | The Exam Room

When it comes to breast cancer your weight matters. Just gaining 8 pounds since graduating high school can make a woman 25% more likely to develop breast cancer. For women who have gained more than 25 pounds, their cancer risk doubles.

Breast cancer surgeon and best-selling author Dr. Kristin Funk discusses why excess fat tempts cancer in your body and outlines the steps you can take to lower your risk when she joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room.

This is the fourth of four special episodes dedicated to breast cancer.

Dr. Funk is helping to lead the Let’s Beat Breast Cancer campaign with the Physicians Committee. She encourages women to take the four-week LBBC challenge to improve their health and reduce their risk for breast cancer.
