Data was just released suggesting that men are dying at a much higher rate than women of melanoma, or skin cancer, worldwide. Interestingly, skin cancer deaths are either decreasing or remaining static in women globally. Researchers at the National Cancer Research Institute examined worldwide data on deaths gathered by the World Health Organization, focusing on 33 countries with the most "reliable data" — including North America, Europe, Australia and some parts of Asia. Science Daily reports that their findings concluded that melanoma death rates were on the rise in men in all countries but one between 1985 and 2015. Their goal was to conduct an “up-to-date analysis” of modern melanoma mortality rates on a global scale in an effort to dig out any patterns and to see if current strategies were having any effect.
