Racial differences in the incidence of breast cancer subtypes defined by combined histologic grade and hormone receptor status.

Joan E Cunningham, Alberto J Montero, Elizabeth Garrett-Mayer, Hans J Berkel & Bert Ely
Breast cancer encompasses several distinct clinical entities of very different characteristics and behaviors, a fact which likely contributes to the higher breast cancer mortality in African-Americans (AA) despite the higher incidence in European-Americans (EA). We are interested in how incidence variability in cancer subtypes defined by combined estrogen receptor (ER) and grade contributes to racial mortality disparities. As an initial step, we compared age-specific and age-adjusted incidence rates for each ER/Grade subtype in South Carolina...
