In this Be Latina article you'll learn about:
- Latino cancer rates are higher than non-Hispanic whites, according to a new study from the American Cancer Society. This is often attributed to less access to care and education around screening options and warning signs.
- Experts agree that Latino communities are often living below the poverty line, with a high percentage of individuals uninsured. 176,000 new cancer cases and 46,000 cancer deaths will occur among Latinos in the continental U.S. and Hawaii this year.
