In conclusion, the current study showed that in Australia, men generally fare worse with cancer than women. It is essential to unravel the mediating effects of stage at diagnosis, co-morbidities, treatment modalities and health-related lifestyle factors on these sex differences in cancer outcomes. Emerging new methods from the causal inference literature offer promise in this area, particularly as access to linked population-based cancer and other health-related datasets improves. Future national and international research should focus on identifying actionable factors to address inequalities in cancer outcomes, which may improve survival for both men and women.
