Bueno troglodita,
You have discovered a deficiency in pyramid.plot, and for that you get 
an answer to your question and brand new source code!


after loading the plotrix package. Use it quickly, for it will be in the 
next version of plotrix and then everyone (todo el mundo, hombre!) will 
be using it.


# it must be wider than the default to accommodate the long labels
  main="Primeiras 10 cancros mais frequentes por sexo",
  top.labels=c("Masculino", "Tipo de cancro", "Feminino"),
  xycol=rep("#8888ff",10),xxcol=rep("#ff88ff",10), gap=25))
