- •Social determinants of health have been linked to compromised outcomes in cancer patients.
- •Social and cultural barriers may influence recognition of symptoms, access to and compliance with care.
- •A population cohort study assesses the association of social determinants of health with uterine cancer stage distribution.
- •Marginalization is linked with advanced disease presentation even when adjusted for comorbidities, obesity and rurality.
- •Mediators of this association should be investigated in order to create opportunities for health equity promotion.
