Health Equity Initiative | Susan G. Komen®

Despite recent scientific advancements and the growing economic and political power of Black women in the U.S., this progress has not translated into gains in the health care and health outcomes of Black women. In fact, we are losing Black women disproportionately to a myriad of diseases including breast cancer. Black women are about 40 percent more likely to die of breast cancer than white women. Black women are being ignored and subject to substandard care detailed in a new 2021 report by Susan G. Komen — Closing the Breast Cancer Gap: A Roadmap to Save Lives of Black Women in America.
Komen conducted the study to better understand the underlying causes of breast cancer inequities across the continuum of care, looking at health data, public policies and the lived experience of Black women in the 10 U.S. metropolitan areas where the gaps in mortality were the greatest, reaching as high as 74 percent. The results showed Black women experience higher rates of death from breast cancer due to a combination of factors, including barriers to early diagnosis, the aggressive nature of certain breast cancers that are more prevalent in Black women, genetics, lack of quality care, discrimination, and systemic racism.
The disparity is not a simple matter of access to screening — it’s a perfect storm of issues that have been brewing for a long time and span across every aspect of the health care system and society at large. Black women are dying more than white women because all of our systems have failed them, and continue to fail them, at every step in their breast cancer journey. Good news is there are solutions to elevate substandard care, the availability and affordability of diagnostics and follow up care, address unfair public policies, insurance practices and implicit bias and racism she encounters daily. https://www.komen.org/about-komen/our-impact/breast-cancer/health-equities-initiative/

Black women are almost 40% more likely to die of breast cancer than white women. Learn how we are working to close that gap.

The choices you make about diet, exercise, and other habits can affect your overall health as well as your risk for developing cancer and other serious diseases.
It’s also important to follow recommendations for cancer screening tests. Screening tests are used to find cancer in people who have no symptoms. Regular screening gives you the best chance of finding cancer early when it’s small and before it has spread.

Many conversations about HPV, the human papillomavirus, are centered around vaccinating young children. While important, many young adults, up to age 45, remain unvaccinated.
Exposure to one or more types of HPV doesn't rule out the potential benefits of vaccination. Talk to your doctor today about the HPV vaccine and if it could help you prevent HPV related cancers.

Cervical Cancer Overview | Guide To Cervical Cancer

Cervical cancer incidence rates have declined by more than half in recent decades, largely due to the widespread use of regular screening and HPV vaccination. Because cervical precancers have no signs or symptoms- and early cervical cancer rarely has any- it's important for people with a cervix to have regular cervical cancer screening.

One of the best things you can do is be aware of what is normal for you – so you can recognize when something changes. A change in your breast, a pain in your body that doesn’t improve, a prolonged cough and new persistent headaches typically aren’t normal, so they should be discussed with a doctor if they don’t go away within a few weeks.
