A marked disparity exists between the cancer survival rates of all Americans, and those of the African American community. Particularly in regards to skin cancer, where the 2008 black survival rate of 70% was 12% lower than the 1979 level for all races, and ovarian cancer, with current black levels equal to all races' 70s level, a 6% decrease.
