Abstract

A better understanding of breast cancer subtypes is allowing their use as prognostic markers. For some time, it has been documented that black women with breast cancer have a poorer prognosis than white women of the same stage. Advances in immunohistochemistry and the appreciation of breast cancer subtypes are enabling investigators to study the distribution of these subtypes among populations.
