A new study suggests women of color may need to consider earlier screening for breast cancer.

The research from Massachusetts general hospital found: Black, Hispanic, and Asian women are generally diagnosed with breast cancer earlier than white women. And black and Hispanic women tended to be diagnosed with aggressive cancers.

Outside experts say the solution may not be earlier screening-- but instead improving the quality of overall cancer care among minorities.
