Cancer in Men Cancer in Men

Data from population based cancer registries in India show that the most frequently reported cancer sites in males are lung, oesophagus, stomach, and larynx.

Lung Cancer:

Smoking remains the major cause for lung cancers. However, lung cancer has also been seen in people who have never smoked. The reasons for this could be secondhand smoke (breathing the smoke of others), air pollution, radon gas, asbestos, exposure to cancer causing chemicals among others.

Oesophagus Cancer:

The oesophagus is the wind and food pipe that runs from the throat to the stomach. The cancer cells affect the inside of the esophagus. Though it is not clear what causes esophageal cancer, it is believed to occur when cells in the esophagus develop errors (mutations) in their DNA.

Stomach/Gastric Cancer

Though the actual cause is still being researched, it has been seen that there are certain risk factors like smoking, family history, poor diet, obesity; lack of exercise, infection with H. pylorican are the known risk factors associated with stomach cancer.
