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.

Recent research concludes that these similarities and differences are due in large part to genetic factors. http://bit.ly/2v5ECNf
