Men More Likely to Die of Cancer: Study


December 7, 2012

Reuters Health - Not only are men more likely than women to be diagnosed with cancer, among those who get the disease, men also have a higher chance of dying from it, according to a new study. In an analysis of cases of all but the sex-specific cancers like prostate and ovarian cancers, for example, men with the disease were more likely than women to die in each of the past 10 years, researchers found. That translates to an extra 24,130 men dying of cancer in 2012 because of their gender.
