- Evidence supports a faster growth rate and/or earlier transformation to clinically significant prostate cancer in black than in white American men, and influences racial progression and mortality disparityIsaac J Powell
Wayne State University School of Medicine and Karmanos Cancer Institute, Detroit, Michigan, USA
J Urol 183:1792-6. 2010..We propose that a more rapid prostate cancer growth rate and/or earlier transformation from latent to aggressive prostate cancer in black than in white men contribute to this disparity...
