Parkinson's disease related to cancer disease

Recently the researchers of University of Utah School of Medicine have found that Parkinson's disease is related to the disease named cancer. It has a connection to an increased risk of prostate cancer and melanoma.

They have also found that this increased cancer risk also leads to close and distant relatives of individuals with Parkinson's disease.

One should know about the Parkinson's disease (PD) properly. It is a progressive neurologic condition of the person who has shivering and difficulty with walking, movement, and coordination.

According to Stefan-M Pulst, co-author of the study, Neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson's disease may cause common disease. This disease may further lead to the some cancers.

He has said that after seeing the Utah Population Database, they were successful in finding the association of PD with different types of cancer. They have done this by studying cancer risk in individuals with PD, with their close and distant relatives.
