Last year, a study by Public Health England and Cancer Research UK also revealed that Black Women were more likely to develop cancer in its late stages positing that study findings showed 22 percent of black Caribbean females and 25 percent of black African women had 3rd and 4th stage breast cancer. This is comparison to 13-percent of British white women.
