Zee Media Bureau/Salome PhelameiLondon: A new study says that men are 70% more vulnerable to skin cancer than women although similar numbers are being diagnosed with the disease.Cancer Research UK, a leading charity, found that some 1,300 of the 6,200 men who develop malignant melanoma die of it each year compared to 900 of the 6,600 women.Health experts are of the view that the difference could be men delaying seeking help as the disease got diagnosed in the latter stages.The charity also says death rates will continue to rise in men while remaining steady in women.Prof Julia Newton-Bishop, a Cancer Research UK dermatologist, said there also seemed to be biological reasons behind the differences. She also thinks that women have stronger immune systems.
