Hi,

Not at all. PCOD is due to hormonal imbalance. Due to which there are many small follicles in the ovary. Lifestyle modifications like exercise and diet change can reduce the effects of PCOS. Do not worry about cancer.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana Rajesh Babu, OB & GYN Specialist
