    Scientists have concluded that cancers of the colon, breast (after menopause) endometrium, kidney, and the esophagus can be caused by obesity.  Some doctors include cancer of the gallbladder, ovaries, and pancreas in that list.  That does not mean that all cancer of those body parts is brought on by obesity, but rather that obesity can be the cause.  In 2002 over 3% of new cancer cases were attributed to obesity.
