Similar to findings for lung cancer, several studies found either no association or weaker associations between BMI and oral cancer among never smokers compared to current smokers. These results suggest that BMI is not causally related to risk of head and neck cancers. However, similar to lung cancer, the causal factors contributing to head and neck cancer among never smokers may be different than those among current or former smokers. 3 Conclusion The inverse association between BMI and head and neck cancer is considered to occur because tobacco use results in lower body weights and acts as a confounding factor in these studies.
