Black and Hispanic people and other minorities tend to know less about skin cancer than whites, a new study suggests

Between one and five Hispanic, black and Asian people out of every 100,000 are diagnosed with melanoma each year. That compares to 20 out of every 100,000 white women and 32 per 100,000 white men. But research shows that minorities with skin cancer tend to be diagnosed at a more advanced stage and have lower chances of survival than whites.
