Racial Gap In Breast Cancer Survival Rates

ATLANTA (WAOK) – A difference in breast cancer survival rates among black and white women remains the same after two decades. Now, a new study indicates the difference is due more to how sick women are when they’re diagnosed, rather than in how they’re treated. The study shows black patients had poorer health at diagnosis, including more advance disease, worse biological features of the disease and tumor sizes that were larger. The study is published in the “Journal of the American Medical Association.”
