Though the cells from breast cancer tumors of African American women and white women have an overwhelming number of similarities, aggressiveness of tumors and outcomes of the disease are drastically different. African American women are much more likely to be diagnosed at a younger age, and are more likely to have more aggressive types of breast cancer, such as triple negative. Recent research concludes that these similarities and differences are due in large part to genetic factors. http://bit.ly/2v5ECNf
