The New Orleans native has had his own set of health problems in the past when he shared that he battled liver disease.
“I have a liver disease, where my autoimmune system is fighting against itself,” he said. “Reality is that I’m sick all the time. I don’t really like to talk about it because I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy. Don’t treat me like I’m a f**kin’ cancer patient, because I’m not.”
Although cancer incidence and mortality overall are declining in all racial/ethnic groups in the United States, certain groups continue to be at increased risk of developing or dying from particular cancers.
Some key cancer incidence and mortality disparities among U.S. racial/ethnic groups include:
– African Americans have higher death rates than all other groups for many, although not all, cancer types.
– African American women are much more likely than white women to die of breast cancer. The mortality gap is widening as the incidence rate in African American women, which in the past had been lower than that in white women, has caught up to that in white women.
– African Americans are more than twice as likely as whites to die of prostate cancer and nearly twice as likely to die of stomach cancer.
– Colorectal cancer incidence is higher in African Americans than in whites. Incidence in all groups is declining, but the difference between the groups remains.
