According to the American Cancer Society, about 202,260 new cancer cases and 73,030 cancer deaths are expected to occur among blacks in 2021. Sadly, African Americans have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any racial and ethnic group in the US for most cancers.
Since 1990, however, the overall cancer death rate has dropped faster in blacks than whites among both men and women. This is largely driven by more rapid declines in blacks for cancers of the lung, colorectum, and prostate.
As a result of this progress, the black-white disparity in cancer mortality has narrowed and more than 462,000 cancer deaths in blacks were avoided over the past 25 years. As noted, breast cancer rates have NOT dropped and as such, it is for that reason why we must do all that we can to eradicate this disease.
