Study: Cancer survival depends on where you live

HealthDay/Washington Post, July 17, 2008

A new study has found that the odds of surviving cancer depend on which country the patient lives in. Factors such as economic differences among countries, access to healthcare, and the availability of cancer treatments feed the disparities in survival, the report said. The study also confirms the disparity in cancer survival among blacks and whites in the United States, said the study's authors.
