This report, commissioned by the Irish Cancer Society and undertaken by the Centre for Men’s Health, Institute of Technology Carlow and the National Cancer Registry of Ireland, looks at cancer incidence and mortality from a gender perspective in Ireland. Men had significantly higher incidence rates of colorectal (bowel), lung, bladder and stomach cancer ranging from 1.6 to 3 times the rate of incidence in females. Melanoma of the skin had higher rates in females. Men had higher mortality rates for all cancers examined, including melanoma of the skin.
