BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among African American women. An estimated 27,060 new cases of breast cancer are expected to occur among African American women in 2013. Among younger women (under age 45), however, the mortality rate of breast cancer is higher in African Americans than in whites.

The median age of diagnosis is 57 years for African American women, compared to 62 years for white women. Breast cancer incidence rates increased rapidly among African American women during the 1980s.

MALE BREAST CANCER

Black men are more likely than white men to die of breast cancer, concludes a study that urges more research into racial disparities in male breast cancer.

Male breast cancer accounts for less than 1 percent of all breast cancers and less than 1 percent of all cancers in men, according to background information in a news release about the study.  The American Cancer Society estimates for breast cancer in men in the United States for 2016 are: About 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed and about 440 men will die from breast cancer.
