The objective of the paper was to summarize the literature findings on alcohol consumption with regard to risk of various gynecological cancers. A Medline search was performed considering available cohort and case–control studies published until 31st March 2009 examining the association between the consumption of alcoholic beverages and cancers of the cervix uteri, corpus uteri, endometrium, ovaries, vagina, and vulva. The number of prospective population-based studies with adequate information… Expand
Alcohol and endometrial cancer risk in the NIH‐AARP diet and health study
TLDR
The results do not support that alcohol is a strong contributor to endometrial cancer risk, but slight risk increases may prevail among some users or for selected tumor characteristics. Expand
Does alcohol consumption modify the risk of endometrial cancer? A dose–response meta-analysis of prospective studies
TLDR
Alcohol intake is not associated with EC regardless of the beverage choice and alcohol consumption level, and no significant associations were detected in the dose–response meta-analyses. Expand
Alcohol and endometrial cancer risk: a case-control study and a meta-analysis
TLDR
The findings provideence that alcohol drinking is not associated with endometrial cancer risk, although a weak positive association for very high drinkers cannot be excluded. Expand
Alcohol and endometrial cancer risk: a case–control study and a meta-analysis
TLDR
Evidence is provided that alcohol drinking is not associated with endometrial cancer risk, although a weak positive association for very high drinkers cannot be excluded. Expand
Alcohol Consumption and Viral Load Are Synergistically Associated with CIN1
TLDR
It is the first demonstration that alcohol is an independent and combined risk factor of CIN1, and a synergistic effect between HPV viral load and alcohol consumption was observed. Expand
Alcohol Abuse Decreases Pelvic Control and Survival in Cervical Cancer: An Opportunity of Lifestyle Intervention for Outcome Improvement
TLDR
The data support the association that heavy alcohol use increases the risk of cancer recurrence and mortality in locally advanced cervical cancer patients undergoing definitive radiation therapy (RT). Expand
Effects of alcohol consumption in general, and wine in particular, on the risk of cancer development: a review
TLDR
The general risk of cancer linked to the consumption of alcoholic beverages, including wine, according to type of cancer is summarized, with 140 extracted relevant references from 1966 to 2020 selected. Expand
Alcohol consumption and persistent infection of high-risk human papillomavirus
TLDR
It is suggested that alcohol consumption might increase the risk of cervical HR-HPV persistence in Korean women. Expand
Could ALDH2*2 be the reason for low incidence and mortality of ovarian cancer for East Asia women?
TLDR
This work hypothesizes whether ALDH2 mutation is the major reason for low incidence and mortality of ovarian cancer in East Asian women, and uses the evidence from literature, transcriptomic data with average 5-year overall survival to confirm the hypothesis. Expand
Effects on Vaginal Microbiota Restoration and Cervical Epithelialization in Positive HPV Patients Undergoing Vaginal Treatment with Carboxy-Methyl-Beta-Glucan
TLDR
Vaginal therapy based on carboxy-methyl-beta-glucan has been able to improve overall vaginal health; this effect seemed to positively impact the risk of persistence and progression of CIN. Expand

TLDR
It is found that alcoholic women are at high risk for in situ and invasive cervical cancer and for cancer of the vagina and the observed excess invasive cervical cancer may be attributable to less use of Pap smear screening among them. Expand
Alcohol Consumption and the Risk of Mucinous and Nonmucinous Epithelial Ovarian Cancer
TLDR
Current heavy consumption of alcohol might be a risk factor for mucinous but not nonmucinous epithelial ovarian cancer, which supports the hypothesis of a distinct etiology for mucinyl tumors. Expand
A case‐control investigation on cancer of the ovary in Bangalore, India
TLDR
Cancer of the ovary is the sixth leading cancer among females in Bangalore, and is a leading site of cancer in other population‐based cancer registries in India, and tubectomy as a method of family planning appeared to reduce the risk of development of ovarian cancer. Expand

TLDR
Findings suggest a potential link between alcohol drinking and endometrial cancer risk and are, in any case, inconsistent with a protective role of alcohol inendometrial carcinogenesis. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that relatively elevated alcohol intake (of the order of 40 g per day or more) may cause a modest increase of epithelial ovarian cancer risk. Expand

TLDR
Key findings were that the risk of cervical cancer increased linearly with the number of pregnancies and varied inversely with age at first reported sexual intercourse, perhaps reflecting an earlier age of infection with human papillomavirus, the main causal agent. Expand
