May 4, 2007, Newsletter Issue #64: Clinical Trials for Women Who Not Diagnosed With Breast Cancer

Tip of the Week

Most clinical studies involving breast cancer compare the effectiveness of two different treatment methods. For that reason, most study participants have already been diagnosed with breast cancer. However, there are clinical trials for women who are at a high risk for developing breast cancer. If you are a woman who has not been diagnosed with breast cancer, you might be able to take part in these clinical trials. It is important to know that you may encounter a treatment method whose long-term side effects are yet unknown. Therefore, it is necessary to consider how these side effects might affect your health. Should you choose to take part in a breast cancer clinical trial, you will be following in the footsteps of thousands of women whose willingness to be studied has resulted in vast improvements in the treatment of breast cancer.
