Breast Cancer Increasing Among African-Americans

Breast cancer rates among Black women have gone up slightly, a new study finds. While this boost was small, it catapulted our rates almost as high as white women, who have the highest breast cancer rates in the U.S., writes Red Orbit. The study also confirms that Black women are more likely to die from breast cancer and be diagnosed with aggressive forms of the disease.
