In brief: Heart disease/ Women
Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States and also a leading cause of disability in women.
Heart disease kills more women than cancer. It is extremely important to have regular checkups and see your physician concerning preventing heart disease and other diseases.

In brief: As common as in men
But delayed by about 10 years due to protective effects of endogenous estrogen.
