Breast Cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa

Show: (July 4, 2022)

breast-cancer-in-sub-saharan-africaWomen living in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) diagnosed with breast cancer are more than four times as likely to die from the disease (48% mortality rate) as women from wealthier countries. Lily Gutnik, MD, explains the interrelated factors—biological, social, and systemic—that lead to later diagnoses and worse outcomes for breast cancer in SSA. She shares her own research experiences in Malawi that explored ways to make screening and detection more likely, such as training laypersons in low-resource areas to conduct clinical breast exams.
