Description:

Finally, here is a book that focuses on the breast cancer challenges in black women all over the world. The book also has relevance to the breast cancer experience in women of other ethnic groups, who live a lifestyle of social marginalization as immigrants, or descendants of recent immigrants in Western societies, as well as women living in less privileged societies all over the world. Although there are numerous technical-scientific books on breast cancer in the global bibliography, such books deal exclusively with the nature of the disease in majority populations of the Western societies, with little or no reference to the nature of the disease in the minority populations in such societies. Similarly, the nature of breast cancer in black women of the less privileged societies, and in women of ethnic groups living in countries of similar socio-economic status, is virtually unknown. For various epidemiological reasons, breast cancer incidence is rapidly increasing in these counties, more so than currently is the case in developed countries. Thus, the global burden of cancer is shifting gradually to these areas of the world, and may equal or even surpass the breast cancer burden in the Western societies within foreseeable future. This book is unique because it bucks the trend of virtually all other breast cancer books by addressing specifically the breast cancer experience of women of African descent and their lifestyle counterparts in other societies of the world.
