Nevadans At Higher Risk Of Cancer

(Las Vegas, NV)  —  A new study says Nevadans are more likely than other Southwestern states to contract and die of cancer.

Researchers at UNLV and the state Health Division say a lack of screening and specialized physicians leads nearly 10% of cancer patients to seek treatment outside Nevada.

Southern Nevadans are more likely to develop cancer than their Northern counterparts, and breast cancer patients have a lower survival rate than the national average.
