African ancestry associated with breast cancer

Breast-Cancer-AfricaThe latest finding lists out the African ancestry's association linked with triple-negative breast cancer, and supposedly considered a difficult thing to be treated.

It was further stated that the case of triple negative breast cancer, which is a high leveled risk in cancer was found to be negative for three specific markers that aid in determining the remedial issues associated such as the estrogen receptor, the progesterone receptor and HER-2/neu.

The cure however is not associated to help women having triple-negative breast cancer. The results for the same supposedly be soared, as it is believed that very few of the African-American women go for these newer treatments as stated by study author Lisa A. Newman, M.D., M.P.H., director of the Breast Care Center at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center.

It was the work of boffins who stated that Ghanaian women were diagnosed were diagnosed at a younger age than American women, and are diagnosed with larger tumors and more advanced cancer.

It was further stated by the Newman, professor of surgery at the U-M Medical School: "African ancestry might be associated with other links to hereditary predisposition for particular patterns of breast cancer. We hope that by studying breast cancer in African and African-American women we can identify biomarkers that might be useful for assessing risk or treating triple-negative breast cancer."
