Black women in England are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with advanced breast cancer as white women, according to a new analysis by Cancer Research UK and Public Health England.
Late-stage disease is found in about 25% of black African and 22% of black Caribbean breast cancer patients, according to BBC.
In white breast cancer patients, the figure is 13%.
Experts say there are many reasons for this. Vital ones to change are low awareness of symptoms and screening.
