Mike Buchanan, J4MB: A piece in Times by Chris Smyth, Health Editor. Emphases ours:
Deaths from prostate cancer have overtaken those from breast cancer for the first time, with a man dying of the disease every 45 minutes.
An increasing number of men are dying of Britain’s most common male cancer, whereas fewer women are succumbing to its female equivalent, official figures show.
Men’s reluctance to talk about health and embarrassing symptoms means that there is twice as much research into breast cancer, which has benefited from decades of celebrity-led awareness campaigns, experts have said. [J4MB: Ridiculous victim blaming, and utterly oblivious of the empathy gender gap.]
