| SLUG | he shouldn’t ignore he statistics are astonishing in that 40% more men die of cancer than women, and are also more likely to develop the disease in the first place. These were the shocking findings of a survey by the National Cancer Intelligence Network and Cancer Research UK (www.ncin.org.uk and www. cancerresearchuk.org). But men’s increased risk probably has nothing to do with their bodies 108 | SEPTEMBER 2012 Cancer symptoms MORE MEN DIE OF CANCER THAN WOMEN BECAUSE THEY DISMISS THE WARNING SIGNS. WE OUTLINE WHAT THEY NEED TO LOOK OUT FOR being more vulnerable to the disease, say researchers. Scientists concluded that, while unhealthier lifestyles played a role, the key reason for the difference is that men are reluctant to see their GP with a worrying symptom. By the time they do seek help, it’s often too late for the disease to be effectively treated. Indeed, a survey for Cancer Research UK found that a third of men had finally sought medical advice only because their wives or girlfriends had pushed them into seeing the doctor. Fear of bad news – understandably – plays a part in this, but cancer survival rates are much better now: the annual 10-year survival rate has doubled over the last 30 years. And your man’s chances of surviving are much better the earlier the cancer is diagnosed. All the symptoms listed below are likely to have a far less worrying cause than cancer, so your man may well come away from his GP with a reassurance rather than the diagnosis he first feared.
