  1. The relationship of obesity to the frequency of pelvic examinations: do physician and patient attitudes make a difference?

    Article - En anglais

    Obese women are at higher risk for the development of both endometrial and ovarian carcinoma.

    Biochemical mechanisms represent documented causal factors but the role of psycho-social attitudes has received limited attention.

    This study examined the difference in the frequency of pelvic screening examinations between obese and non-obese women and the effect of physician and patient attitude toward obesity on examination frequency.
