By the end, researchers women who ate the most amount of red meat had an estimated 23 percent higher risk of developing breast cancer than those who ate the least amount of red meat.

Recent studies found cancer risk may be higher in people with PsO and PsA. The study found that people with psoriasis had about a 50 percent greater risk of developing melanoma and hematologic cancers compared to people without psoriasis , but there were no significant differences in cancer

Recent research suggests that psoriasis can increase the chance of developing certain types of cancer . Find out what you can do to minimize the risk . A review of eight studies published in the British Journal of Dermatology found biologics to be unrelated to higher cancer risks .

The study published in the journal JAMA Dermatologyfeatured data from 58 observational studies. Due to the reporting of the studies it was not possible for the researchers to tally the total number of participants involved.

The chronic autoimmune disease, which makes skin cells grow faster than normal, can cause patches of thick, red skin and scales to develop on the body. These are most often found on the knees, scalp, elbows, lower back, face, soles of the feet and palms.

Alex Trafford, co-author of the study in the Pharmacy Department at the U.K's Manchester University, told Newsweek: "This study is significant as it brings together a large body of literature considering the association between psoriasis and cancer in order to provide a more concise picture.

"To our knowledge, it is the first meta-analysis to consider how cancer risk differs according to the severity of psoriasis and it is also the first to explore how lifestyle factors, such as smoking and obesity, influence this risk."

However, he acknowledged as each study was designed differently and there were disparities in the results, the study is somewhat limited.

Addressing concerns those suffering from psoriasis may have due to the findings, Trafford said: "Although our study found an association between psoriasis and cancer, we also found considerable heterogeneity in the results.

More research is needed before any strong conclusions can be drawn, he said.

"It is also important to note that we found lower cancer risk in studies that took lifestyle factors, such as smoking and obesity, into account," he said. "This provides some evidence to suggest that, as with people without psoriasis, making healthy lifestyle changes might lower the risk of cancer."

The study comes after the World Health Organization highlighted psoriasis as a condition that requires more attention, explained Trafford. He is part of the Global Psoriasis Atlas project, which links people with the condition to researchers to plug gaps in our knowledge.

On World Psoriasis Day on October 29, the project is launching a website for those with and those who study the condition.
