Bay Area breast cancer clusters seen
San Francisco Chronicle

Breast cancer clusters in California may not be limited to Marin County. New research released Tuesday identified four areas of the state that have rates of the disease 10 to 20 percent higher than the state average. Relying on U.S. census tracts rather than county-level data, researchers for the Public Health Institute’s California Breast Cancer Mapping Project in Oakland were able to identify northern and southern Bay Area counties as “areas of concern.” The two other areas were located in Southern California.
