Is Cervical Cancer a Real Threat to Hispanic Women?

Cervical cancer is a growing concern among our communities. In 2022, an estimated 2,460 cases of invasive cervical cancer are expected to be diagnosed among Black women, that's 22% higher than other, non-Hispanic white women. However, the death rate has been on a steady incline among Hispanic women as well, up 2% every year! We partnered with leading OBGYN Dr. Alane Park and HIA Technologies to present you with the latest information regarding screening to prevent cervical cancer. Learn more about Colposcopy & Biopsy and the HPV virus that causes cervical cancer.

HHCGA ELDERLY MAN THINKING ABOUT HEALTH CARE.jpeg

Cancer is the leading cause of death in the hispanic community, overall. For colorectal cancer. specifically, the death rate is 11% in men and 9% in women. Two of the factors that increase the risk of colorectal cancer disproportionately affect the Hispanic community. These are excess body weight and type II diabetes. For adults ages 45 and older who are at average risk for the disease, colorectal cancer risk is also reduced through the use of screening tests that can detect and remove precancerous polyps, as well as detecting cancer at an early stage before symptoms develop.

Why are women of color more likely to die of cancer?

Black women with breast cancer are 41% more likely to die from the disease than white women and it all comes down to early detection. White women are typically diagnosed earlier, allowing more time for treatment and better outcomes. Women of color are also less likely to be screened with the newest technology, and have longer wait times between abnormal results and follow-up, according to the American Cancer Society. Talk to the women in your life about mammography today and help them avoid being one of the predicted 6,800 breast cancer deaths this year.

The HHCGA in partnership with HIA are paving the way to health equity and patient education
