Women have a risk of getting cancer cells faster than men. In fact, the risk increases to six times. From a study conducted by Cancer Research UK, the main trigger is an unhealthy lifestyle. However, if differentiated by sex, women are more likely to have cancer faster.
From the unhealthy lifestyle, the problem of obesity become one of the factors causing it. Obese women are more prone to have cancer typical for them such as ovarian cancer and uterine cancer. In addition, obese women are also more likely to get cervical cancer and oral cancer.
In a note from Cancer Research UK, the number of cancer patients in the UK more quickly experienced by women than men. At least it will still happen until 20 years into the future. The number of female cancer patients increased 3 percent and men were still at 0.5 percent.
The most common types of cancer encountered up to half the appearance of new cancers per year are breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and bowel cancer. The number of breast cancer patients is estimated to increase to 71,022 cases in 2035. Increased ovarian cancer is likely to reach 10,500 cases from the previous 7,367 cases. Lastly, lung cancer increased from 21,633 cases to 29,957 cases.
“Cancer is a severe and seriously worrying disease that the number is predicted to rise sharply for women, especially when many cancers can be prevented. In fact, our evidence suggests that about one-third of the most common cancers can be prevented if people have a healthy weight, eat more nutritious and active foods, “said Sarah Toule, head of health information at the World Cancer Research Fund, as quoted by Republika.
