Abstract

To investigate the role of selected medical conditions on the risk ofovarian cancer, we analysed data from a case-control study. Cases were 971 women below the age of 75 years with histologically confirmed epithelial ovarian cancer, admitted to a network of hospitals including the major teaching and general hospitals in the greater Milan area. Controls were 2758 women admitted to the same network of hospitals for acute, non-gynaecological, non-hormone related, non-neoplastic conditions. Obesity/severe overweight were inversely associated with the risk of ovarian cancer (multivariate relative risk, RR, 0.66, 95% confidence interval, CI, 0.52-0.85). Hyperlipidaemia was also inversely relatedto ovarian cancer risk, (RR 0.64, 95% CI 0.45-0.89). No relationship emerged between ovarian cancer risk and diabetes (RR 0.80, 95% CI 0.54-1.19), hypertension (RR 0.85, 95% CI 0.68-1.06), thyroid diseases (RR0.89, 95% CI 0.63-1.13) and cholelithiasis (RR 0.86, 95% CI 0.66-1.12). A decreased frequency of ovarian cancer was seen in women with a history of uterine leiomyomas (RR 0.66, 95% CI 0.47-0.92) and benign ovarian cysts (RR 0.69, 95% CI 0.41-1.13).
