Associations between obesity and lung and head and neck cancers are confounded by tobacco use.

Studies that have examined these combinations of factors have found much greater increases in risk among people who have these adverse health profiles.

However, incidence and mortality rates of HCC have been increasing rapidly in the United States since the mid-1980s [131]. Hepatitis C and hepatitis B infection and alcoholic liver disease are known risk factors. However, only hepatitis C infection has contributed to the increase in the United States in recent decades, suggesting remaining unidentified risk factors [77–81].
