Overweight and obese individuals are more likely than normal-weight individuals to have conditions or disorders that are linked to or that cause chronic local inflammation and that are risk factors for certain cancers .

For example, chronic local inflammation caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease is a likely cause of oesophageal cancer.

Fat tissue in the body produces excess amounts of estrogen, high levels of which have been associated with increased risks of breast, endometrial, ovarian, and some other cancers.

The risk of cancers like breast, colon and prostrate reduces on losing weight.
