This is an interesting report on PC just pertaining to the state of South Carolina.  It amazes me how much incidence and mortality can vary from state to state, and within the state.
SC has a high African-American population, so the usual thinking about them having higher numbers of PC case, more aggressive cases sometimes, and highest mortality related to PC, make perfect sense in my state

  • David in SC
    This is the group that posted the report:

    Dave that link gives me a 404, file or directory not found...

    Yes, a higher percentage of Blacks is one reason and, perhaps, the treatment options open to Blacks might be another reason.."All Men Are Created Equal" *except in Carolina and several other states...

    Cut & paste this through the .pdf:
 2010 Cancer Report Card Final1.pdf
    The problem is the spaces that convert to %20, but then don't convert back correctly. The link does not translate properly, and thinks you are looking for a doc named just SCCA.
