Can someone tell me how to figure one's body mass index?

I read an article tonight stating men with a BMI over 35 had a 69% greater chance of cancer returning after surgery than men with a BMI of 25.

Hey William1,
I got this link from the CDC website. There are calculators, charts, etc... Copy and paste this into your browser.

Be careful with BMI it has been discredited; most high impact sports altheletes have a poor BMI but are very fit. Now I take it you are not one of these people. However a more constructive measure is waist to hip ratio which should be for a middle aged person below 1. If its significantly above then it is an indicator your diet and exercise level is wrong which can lead to primary cancer or
a reoccurence.
Kind regards
