A new study is reporting that taller women have an increased chance of developing cancer.

Researchers say the risk went up by 13% with every 4 inches of height.

The study suggests that while you can't change your height, you can focus on prevention.

They say taller women need to pay extra attention to exercise and diet and get the recommended screening tests.
