    This racial disparity is largely due to Black women having more advanced staged breast cancer at the time of diagnosis, higher rates of obesity and other health conditions, and certain types of breast cancers that have a less favorable prognosis. These disparities are largely grounded in historical and persistent racism in the U.S., preventing Black women from accessing high-quality cancer treatment and staying on track with treatment compared with white women.
