Racial disparities in the United States health care system, is a frightening concept. According to large new study, racial disparities exist in the treatment of non- small cell lung cancer among hospitals in the United States.
Cancer is a scary disease in itself and for patients to have to worry about racial disparities while they undergo treatment is unfair.
The research indicates that blacks were less likely than Hispanics or whites to have surgery in the early stages of the disease. Hispanics were more likely to undergo surgery for stage 1 and stage 2 disease than white patients. These findings indicate that there is a statistical significance in racial disparities in the surgical management of these patients.
