Gender Difference in Clinical Outcomes of Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Prognostic Analysis Based on Propensity Score Matching and Nomogram Model

1. Abstract 1.1. Background: Whether male sex has disadvantageous effects on the prognosis for survival in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains controversial. In this retrospective study, we explored the effect of sex on HCC prognosis. We used sex as a predictor to construct prognostic models to predict HCC-related survival (HRS) and relapse free survival (RFS).
