Breast Cancer Mortality Rate is Higher Among Black Women

Despite making efforts by researchers to find out about the breast cancer in younger black women nothing significant has been achieved so far//.

“The present study adds an important piece to a large puzzle,” said senior study author Dr. Robert Millikan. “Previous studies showed that many breast tumors in younger African American women are very fast-growing and hard to treat.

'We found something new: younger African American breast cancer patients show a high frequency of one of the aggressive subtypes of breast cancer called basal-like,' said Millikan, associate professor of epidemiology at the UNC School of Public Health, a UNC Lineberger member and principal investigator of the Carolina Breast Cancer Study (CBCS).

The CBCS, one of the largest black breast cancer databases in the United States, is a population-based case-control study that enrolled women with breast cancer from 24 counties of North Carolina as cases, and an equal number of women without breast cancer as controls. Women who consented to the study were interviewed about their histories, and their tumor tissue was collected. The study required extensive cooperation from all of the women who participated in the study, their physicians and pathologists, and a large number of hospitals in North Carolina.
