Lymph node metastasis and invasion are less frequent in overweight and obese patients. Patients were separated into WHO quartiles of BMI. When normalized to normal or underweight individuals, patients with BMI in the 30–35 and greater than 35 kg/m2 ranges were less likely to have nodal metastasis (Mets) or local tumor invasion, with both odds ratios and confidence intervals being less than 1.0 in the highest weight group. The numbers of patients (n) in the different weight groups from whom nodal metastasis (NM) or tumor invasion (TI) data were available are included below the graph.
