Minority groups in the US can be classified into four major ethnic groups American Indian/Alaskan Native, Asian Americans, African Americans and Latino-Americans.  U.S. minority groups approaches 40% of the overall population, and about 25% of the cancer survivor population. U.S. minority groups are among the fastest growing segments of the general population and among those affected by cancer. Their rapidly increasing representation warrants further research investigating and addressing health related quality of life and survivorship outcomes.
