Reuters (9/17, Rapaport) reports that a new report published in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians indicates that cancer is still the number one cause of death among US Hispanics.

Still, the NPR (9/17, Rizzo, Shute, 1.85M) “Shots” blog reports, that Hispanic people are much “less likely to get cancer than non-Hispanic whites.”

HealthDay (9/17, Reinberg, 5K) reports, “According to the report, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among Hispanic men.” Meanwhile, “this year, liver cancer will surpass colon cancer as the second leading cause of cancer deaths among Hispanic men.” The report also indicates that “among Hispanic women, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death at 16 percent of all cancer deaths, followed by lung and colon cancers.” Medscape (9/17, 232K) and Medical Daily (9/17, 73K) also cover the story.
