Study: More U.S. men die from cancer than women
USA Today

Men in the United States are much more likely than women to die of cancer, a new report from the U.S. National Cancer Institute found. Gender differences in cancer incidence — more men than women develop cancer in the first place — rather than differences in cancer survival appeared to drive the findings, the researchers said. “If we can identify modifiable causes of sex difference in cancer incidence and mortality then preventative actions could reduce the cancer burden in both men and women,” said lead researcher Michael B. Cook, a National Cancer Institute epidemiologist.
