Hispanic women have lower survival rates from Triple Negative Breast Cancer than Black and White women

Hispanic women had the lowest five-year survival from Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) at 10.7%, compared to Black women at 11.8% and White women at 13.1%, in a study of 26,963 women diagnosed with TNBC between 2010 and 2016.

Higher proportions of Hispanic (16.8%) and Black women (9.0%) were diagnosed with TNBC before the age of 40, when compared to White women (7.6%). And higher proportions of Black (84.2%) and Hispanic (84.1%) women were diagnosed
with high-grade tumors (grades III-IV) compared to NHW women (78.5%).
