In the study “Obesity increases endometrial cancer risk in Chinese women with postmenopausal bleeding” by Liu et al, Asian women with a BMI greater than 25 (the standard for obesity in Asians) had a significant increased risk of endometrial cancer compared with women with a BMI less than 25 when they presented with postmenopausal bleeding. It is important to be aware that the BMI in Asian women has different relevance when compared with the same number in White women. It is also important to emphasize that an Asian woman with bleeding post menopause and with a BMI greater than 25 must be evaluated.
