Abstract or Summary
  • Studies indicate that many cancers occur more frequently in adult males than females. This male predominance must either be due to disparate environmental exposures or innate, biologic mechanisms, or a combination of the two. Using data and statistical software from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program, male:female incidence rate ratios were calculated for 86 cancer sites in adults and 60 cancer sites for childhood cancers. About 95% of the adult cancer sites and 55% of the childhood cancer sites showed increased incidence in males. The finding of a male predominance in childhood cancers weakens the argument that unequal environmental exposures are the cause of the overall sex disparity.
