Dyslipidaemia in Cancer
Lipids are essential components of cell membrane and play a vital role in various biological functions including maintaining the integrity of cell. Studies have revealed alterations of lipid profile to be associated with cancer. Not many studies have been carried out to evaluate association of serum lipid levels, oral cancer and precancer. Lower levels of lipids may be due to increased utilisation of lipids by the tumour cells for synthesis of cell membrane. Low levels may also serve as a marker or prognostic indicator of underlying malignancy.
