  1. Sex differences in the risks of hormone-dependent cancers.

    Article - En anglais

    There are marked variations in the risk of hormone-dependent cancers between males and females, and these are likely to reflect sex differences in endogenous hormone profiles.

    The authors examined sex differences in the risk of hormone-dependent cancers of sex-shared sites by using data from the England and Wales national cancer registry for 1962-1984.

    Both breast and thyroid cancers showed marked excesses in risk for women, but the female:male ratio peaked around menopause for breast cancer and at puberty for thyroid cancer, suggesting that although female sex hormones may influence the risk of these two cancers, the mechanisms involved are probably different.
