JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Does the stress of breast cancer hit certain ethnic groups harder than others?

High levels of stress have been linked to aggressive forms of breast cancer.

A study at the University of Illinois found the link seems especially strong among black and Hispanic breast cancer patients -- who report higher levels of fear, anxiety and isolation.

The study is being presented at the conference on the Science of Cancer Health disparities in Washington.
