Bariatric surgery cut skin cancer risk in people with obesity, according to a new trial.

Among participants from the ongoing Swedish Obese Subjects (SOS) study, bariatric surgery was tied to a 41% reduced risk for developing any form of skin cancer versus nonsurgical obesity management (adjusted subhazard ratio 0.59, 95% CI 0.35-0.99, P=0.047), reported Magdalena Taube, PhD, of the University of Gothenburg, and colleagues.
