Abstract
A clear relationship between diabetes and cancer has been demonstrated. An increased incidence of several cancers is observed in diabetic patients, notably pancreatic, hepatic, colo-rectal, breast, urinary tract and endometrial cancer. By contrast a decreased incidence of prostate cancer is observed in diabetes patients implying a protective effect. Multiple potential mechanisms have been proposed but they remain hypothetical.
