A new study has discovered higher reports of cancer among gay men.

Researchers studied more than 120,000 people and found that gay men are twice as likely as straight men to report a cancer diagnosis.

Some doctors speculate that the higher cancer rates could be linked to the higher rate of Anal Cancer among gay men or because of greater incidents of HIV infections.

Others say it could be because smoking rates are higher among homosexual men.
