Women are more likely to develop cancer than men, according to new research.
The results were presented at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in New Orleans.
The study, published in the British Medical Journal, looked at data from more than 1.4 million people in the US and UK.
They found that women were more likely than men to develop prostate cancer and lung cancer.
In fact, men were more than twice as likely as women to develop both cancers.
Women were also more likely for lung cancer to develop into lung cancer and breast cancer.
But women were less likely than other women to die from these cancers, and women who died had more severe symptoms.
“What we found is that men are more susceptible to the risk of lung cancer, lung cancer is more severe for men than women,” said Dr Susan Leake, a cancer expert at the University of California, San Francisco.
“In fact, for women, we found that men with lung cancer were at a higher risk of dying from the disease than men without lung cancer.”
Dr Leake said that this difference may reflect different mechanisms in the body that could explain why men and women are more at risk of developing cancer.
“We also know that women have more cancer in their lungs, for example,” she said.
Dr Daniela Gomes, a cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic, said the findings showed that cancer treatment for women was not a good idea. “
If we could find a way to reverse that, we would have the potential to prevent a lot of cancers, including cancers in the lung.”
Dr Daniela Gomes, a cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic, said the findings showed that cancer treatment for women was not a good idea.
“It’s important that the medical community acknowledge that women do not get cancer and that women may be at increased risk for lung and breast cancers, as well as breast cancer,” she told ABC News.
“There are lots of other risk factors that women, even with screening, have and are at greater risk for.”
She said that although women do have more breast cancer, it’s unlikely they would develop it if they were not regularly screened.
“Women do have an increased risk of ovarian cancer,” Dr Gomes said.
But, she said, this risk was likely to be small.
“The evidence is now saying that women’s breast cancer risk is relatively low,” she added.
“But there is still evidence that men’s breast cancers are even higher.”
A woman with cancer who has been tested at least once and has had a mammogram is at a lower risk of contracting it than a woman with no cancer history.
But men and boys with prostate cancer have the highest risk of being diagnosed with it.
Dr Leakes said that in the UK, women who were screened at least three times in their lives had an almost 20 per cent increased risk.
“That means that if we were to make every woman who has ever been screened to three tests, that would put women at nearly five times the risk that we have seen for women without cancer,” he said.
Dr Gunes said that more research was needed to understand how the body responds to screening.
“One of the things we are seeing is that the body does not actually know that you have cancer,” Professor Gunes added.
He said that there was no proof that screening was the right way to manage cancer, but added that this research had opened up a new way to study the impact of cancer treatments on women.
“I think that this is a really important research and it is really important that this be replicated in the United States,” he added.
