Why More Black Women Than White Women Are Dying Of Breast Cancer — & How We Can Do Better

It’s a systemic issue.” She’s right, and the data backs her up: According to a new study released earlier this month by the Avon Foundation for Women, Black women are 43 percent more likely to die of breast cancer than white women.
“We suspect the disparity continues to grow primarily due to access to healthcare,” he says.
And for good reason: The five-year survival rate among women with breast cancer that hasn’t spread or metastasized is nearly 99 percent.
Hurlbert says that in some hospitals across the country, women can wait weeks, and even months, just to get a mammogram, which has a ripple effect, delaying surgery and treatment if both are needed.
Advertisement “If a woman comes in with a lump and has no insurance and needs to get into surgery after a biopsy, but learns that her hospital doesn’t have any open slots, a patient navigator can refer her to another local hospital.
Still, there’s more work to be done, especially for women whose cancer has reached stage IV and metastasized, meaning it has spread to other parts of the body.
Hurlbert says, “We don’t have specific data on what stage of breast cancer the women in the report had, but stage IV breast cancer is what kills.
Advocates such as Beth Caldwell, who was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer at 37 — years before she would have started routine mammograms — are lobbying to increase research funding.
“Roughly 40,000 Americans have been dying of metastatic breast cancer annually for several years now,” Caldwell pointed out.
What saves people’s lives is research.” Advertisement This article was originally published at the “Article” source noted above and distributed by The Tutu Project for informational purposes only.

The Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN) is hoping to alleviate some of the barriers to timely treatment through a series of informational materials in both English and Spanish.
The MBCN has created several informational resources for individuals coping with Stage IV breast cancer: “Being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer can often be a frightening or overwhelming for many women,” according to the MBCN.
“This type of diagnosis can be especially difficult with those who don’t speak the language.” Materials can be downloaded or ordered as hard copies, and are available in English, too.
