Fewer Blacks Undergo Lung Cancer Surgery

Black men get lesser care in the case of lung cancer when compared to whites, according to a Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s research findings // .This is in spite of the fact that lung cancer is more frequently found among black males. The disease accounts for the highest number of cancer deaths. The healthcare gap where blacks are concerned needs to be addressed. Both whites and blacks have equal access to lifesaving surgeries in the country, according to researcher Christopher Lathan.

This could be rectified to a certain extent by bridging the communication gap which exists between the patients and doctors. As many as 21,000 patients suffering from lung cancer were traced. Medicare was the source of treatment to the patients who were aged over 65 years, and were suffering from non-small cell lung cancer.

The black patients were found to be 25% less likely to go in for an invasive test, and even among those who did, they were 45% less likely to go in for a surgery. The whites accounted for over 90% of the invasive tests conducted in the US. The number of recommendations for surgery where black men are concerned were also found to less when compared to whites.
