African American Men Hit Harder by Breast Cancer
African American men are hit harder by breast cancer than their white counterparts. After diagnosis, African American men are three times more likely to die from breast cancer than white men.
Why? African American men were less likely than white men to be referred to an oncologist or get chemotherapy for breast cancer; this may be because of disparities in healthcare for African American and research suggests that breast cancers in African American men and women may have different genes than breast cancers in whites. These different genes could explain why the breast cancers in African American men were much more likely to be large and spread to the lymph nodes when diagnosed.
