To diagnose brain cancer in women is more difficult
The Brain Tumour Charity was engaged in the study of the diagnosis of brain tumors. In the report the researchers note that to diagnose tumors of the brain in women is more complicated than in men.
In most cases, to diagnose the tumor in women managed only 10-12 months to do so in the early stages is difficult. According to statistics, 30% of women having a brain tumor and feeling unwell, to detect the disease at early stages is not possible. In men, the figure is 15%.
To explain this pattern, the researchers can not yet, but research is ongoing.
