There are few published data on stage-specific prostate cancer incidence rates in United States black patients versus white patients, and there are no data comparing treatment received by black versus white patients with prostate cancer.
Using data from a population-based cancer registry, the proportion of prostate cancers diagnosed in Connecticut from 1985-1988 at each clinical stage was examined for blacks and whites, along with stage-specific incidence rates.
First course of treatment was also examined by clinical stage.
The proportion of cases diagnosed at the metastatic stage was higher for black patients (35.4%) than for white patients (22.1%), and age-specific incidence rates for metastatic cancer were 1.5-3.3 times higher for black patients.
