Men 'more vulnerable' to skin cancer
Far more men than women are dying from skin cancer, despite similar numbers being diagnosed with the disease, a report suggests.
Cancer Research UK said each year, the most serious type of skin cancer, malignant melanoma, kills 1,300 men and 900 women, a gap expected to widen.
A reason could be men delaying seeking help, but biology may also play a part.
