Cancer Health Disparities

Cancer health disparities refer to differences in cancer incidence, mortality, and outcomes that exist among different populations. These disparities can be due to a variety of factors, including race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geography, and access to healthcare.

Studies have shown that certain populations, such as African Americans and Hispanics, are more likely to be diagnosed with cancer at a later stage and have higher mortality rates than non-Hispanic whites. This is due in part to differences in access to healthcare, as well as differences in cancer risk factors, such as smoking, diet, and physical activity.

To address cancer health disparities, researchers and healthcare providers are working to increase access to cancer prevention, screening, and treatment services in underserved communities. This can involve increasing awareness about cancer risk factors and the importance of early detection, as well as providing targeted outreach and education programs.
