Sex differences in cancer risk and survival
A Swedish thesis have analysed sex differences in cancer risk and survival over time. Women's better survival in non-small cell lung cancer indicates sex differences in tumor biology. Women’s poorer survival in bladder cancer was restricted to those with muscle invasive bladder cancer, indicating differences in clinical management and treatment of men and women with muscle invasive tumors. The thesis also showed that the excess cancer risk in men is explained by body height.
