In brief: Multifactorial

There are several reasons for gender disparities.
Some factors represent basic biological differences between men and will not change. For example, increased estrogen production by women places them at higher risk than men for breast cancer. Some disparities are based on social factors. For example, men have a higher risk for lung cancer than women because more men smoke.
