As part of Men's Health Week 2004, the Men’s Health Forum (England and Wales), produced a new analysis of cancer in the UK showing that cancer is now a bigger killer of men than heart disease.
The MHF, backed by nine other charities, has called for urgent action to address the health inequalities that exist between men and women across a broad range
of cancers. They say that current cancer policy is failing the 134,000 men who are diagnosed with, and the 80,000 men who die from, cancer every year. Cancer is the single most frequent cause of male deaths in the UK – one man in three will receive a diagnosis of cancer at some point in his lifetime and one in four will die
from the disease.
