“We have an epidemic of endometrial cancer in Black women in this country”

Carol L. Brown, MD

“We have an epidemic of endometrial cancer in this country and it is disproportionately affecting Black women.”

“The number of endometrial cancer cases has increased by 57 percent in the last 10 years. This is not seen in any other GYN cancer,” says Carol L. Brown, MD, of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York

“For Black women, the increase in both the number of cases and the number of deaths per 100,000 women is rising and it’s rising at a much higher rate than it is for any other racial or ethnic group.”
