Abstract

In an effort to determine the impact of race on the stage of prostate cancer at presentation, the records of 2102 patients diagnosed in Chicago between 1985 and 1987 were reviewed. For each of three age groups (less than 65, 65 to 75, and greater than 75 years), blacks had a significantly (P less than .05) lower percentage of localized stage disease than whites. Inasmuch as stage at diagnosis is inversely related to survival, these data may explain in part why prostate cancer mortality in every age category is higher for blacks than whites nationally.
