An analysis of cancer cases shows men are more likely than women to be diagnosed *and* to die from the disease. Taking out gender-specific cancers like ovarian and prostate - the study found men were more likely to die in each of the past ten years from cancer.

While it didn't show what's behind the difference in deaths, theories include men's higher rates of smoking and drinking, combined with less frequent doctor visits.
