The authors prospectively investigated the association between body mass index (BMI) and ovarian cancer among US women from 1996 through 1997 to December 31, 2003. Exploratory analyses suggested a positive association between BMI and ovarian cancer among women without a family history of ovarian cancer, but no relation with BMI was apparent among women with a positive family history of ovarian cancer. Obesity was suspected as being associated with enhanced ovarian cancer risk through a hormonal mechanism.
