Lung cancer rates and African-Americans

Posted:

Many African-Americans diagnosed with lung cancer aren't getting the treatment that doctors say could save their lives.  Blacks were 37-percent less likely than whites to get the recommended surgery and 42-percent less likely to undergo chemotherapy.  Nearly 60-percent of African-Americans with later stages of the disease didn't get chemo.
