Compared to women, men are said to be less likely to protect themselves from the sun or listen to public health. In eight of 18 countries examined, data showed that the mortality of skin cancer among men increased sharply. ( Pixabay )
The death rate for skin cancer increases for men in developing countries. Such problems can arise from exposure to UV rays from the sun or from artificial sources such as solarium.
At a medical conference in Glasgow last Sunday, researchers presented data on skin cancer mortality in 1
8 developing countries, which specifically note how mortality among women rises slower or even drops compared to the rates among men.
Specifically, researchers note that the mortality of skin cancer among eight of the men in the last 30 years had at least doubled. The death rate for skin cancer deaths in Croatia and Ireland doubled in general, while Spain and Britain had an increase of 70 percent, the Netherlands had an increase of 60 percent, and France and Belgium had an increase of 50 percent.
Countries with highest mortality were not necessarily those with the highest increase. Australia, for example, has the highest skin quota and death rates worldwide, with six out of 100,000 men affected by the disease from 2013 to 2015, but it only saw an increase of 30 percent of skin cancer deaths from 30 years ago
It is not clear why there were differences between skin cancer mortality among men and women, but researchers suggest that it is because men are less likely to protect themselves from the sun than women. It is said that researchers are looking at genetic or biological factors that may be associated with skin cancer, but the findings are still undoubted.
In the United States, not included in the study, data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention CDC) shows that skin cancer mortality among men has increased by 25 percent. Furthermore, CDC data also showed that over 90 percent of melanoma cancer is caused by cell damage from sun exposure, as well as other sources of UV radiation such as solarium.
