Report says Hispanics are increasingly at risk for developing cancer

New evidence shows that the Hispanic community is increasingly at risk for developing cancer.A study released by the American Cancer Society says that cancer will be the number two cause of death among Latinos this year. The report finds that Hispanics are more likely to be overweight and lead sedentary lifestyles, which may lead to risks of cancer. The report also says that Hispanics are more reluctant to visit a doctor to seek preventative medicine or receive cancer screenings.While much of the general population is likely to develop common cancers such as breast and lung cancer, Latinos are more apt to develop less common forms of the disease including cervical, stomach and liver cancer.
