The study looked at black, Hispanic and Asian women. It found they are generally diagnosed with breast cancer earlier than white women.

Researchers say they also found that black and Hispanic women tended to be diagnosed with more aggressive cancers.

It's not clear if this points to a need for earlier screening or a need to improve the quality of overall cancer care among minorities.
