Disparities in incidence, mortality, and age of onset of breast cancer between women of African ancestry and women of other racial/ethnic backgrounds are poorly understood. A more comprehensive elaboration of genetic variants that occur in African women may facilitate a better understanding of the disease in African American women and explain the role of genetic admixture on the variation in the expression of the disease. Large-scale, population-based databases that document the cancer burden… CONTINUE READING
