Black women are significantly more impacted by high-risk endometrial cancers

“When you look at serous carcinomas (which accounts for most of the deaths from this cancer), they’re increasing over 6% every single year for Black women for almost the last 20 years, says Cortney Eakin, MD, of the University of California, Los Angeles.

That’s a lot! If that trend continues over the next 10 years, when a Black woman gets diagnosed with uterine cancer, she’s going to be three times as likely to get a high-risk cancer compared with a low-risk one.
