Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease found to increase risk for several types of cancer

Older women with periodontal disease (gum disease) may be at a higher risk for cancer, say researchers. A collaborative study by State University of New York at Buffalo, University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston, TX, and other U.S. institutions has found links between periodontal disease and breast cancer, esophageal cancer and cancer of the gallbladder. Post-menopausal women were found to be at a higher risk for these cancer types if they had gum disease, but periodontal disease can increase your risk for cancer and other health problems at any age.
