According to the Singapore Cancer Society,
1 in every 37 Singaporeans are diagnosed with cancer every day; 16 people die from cancer every day; and 1 in 3 deaths is caused by cancer.
Wouldn’t you want to know as females are we more prone to diseases than our male counterparts?
Yes, though by a thin margin. 51.4%* of the incidence of cancers occurred in females.
*Numbers are extracted from the Singapore Cancer Registry Annual Registry Report 2015 (here) and are accurate as at 21 Jan 2019.
On the same note, breast cancer holds the highest occurrence among Singaporean Women, with 1,850 women being diagnosed and 400 deaths from the same disease which should not be taken lightly.
