Taller Women May Face Higher Cancer Odds After Menopause, Study Suggests

THURSDAY, July 25 (HealthDay News) -- Sizing up cancer risk after menopause, scientists say taller women may face higher odds of developing a malignancy than their shorter peers.

For every height increase of roughly 4 inches, older women faced a 13 percent greater overall risk for 19 types of cancer, a new study suggested. When broken down by specific type, risk rose almost one-third for certain cancers.
