Obese people may be less likely to develop prostate cancer but more likely to die of the disease, a study says.
Researchers found the cancer was much less likely to develop in people who are insulin resistant - a pre-diabetes condition linked to obesity.
But they were more likely to develop an aggressive form of the disease likely to spread to other parts of the body.
The study involving 784 men, by Sweden's Umea University, is published in the International Journal of Cancer.
