Equalizing access to lung cancer prevention, detection, and treatment
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among Hispanic/Latino men, and the second leading cause of cancer death in Hispanic/Latina women. Despite having a lower incidence rate of lung cancer than non-Latino white Americans, Latinos with lung cancer were 13% less likely to be diagnosed early, 2% less likely to receive surgical treatment, and 39% more likely to not receive any treatment in comparison.
Actor Esai Morales joined us for a documentary on lung cancer. You can watch the English version below. A Spanish-language documentary is available here.
