Study: African Americans With Cancer 14% More Likely To Be Metastatic At Time Of Diagnosis

2020-04-09 06:04:26

Compared to Asian patients, a new study reveals black people with cancer are more likely to have metastatic disease. According to UPI, black cancer sufferers are at 14% greater risk for having their disease metastasize prior to diagnosis. JAMA Network Open researchers said the case is particularly true in cancers of the esophagus and colon. The authors said the reason for these racial disparities may be "shortages of physicians and medical centers in communities of color." Compared with Asian patients, white patients had poorer survival rates for cancer of the prostate, stomach, pancreas, lung, liver, and colon. Black patients had worse survival rates in all nine cancers studied.
