Frequently Asked Questions

32. Are there other options for someone with breast cancer?

Some breast cancer patients take part in studies of new treatments. These studies called clinical trials are designed to find out whether a new treatment is both safe and effective. Often, clinical trials compare a new treatment with a standard one so that doctors can learn which is more effective. People with breast cancer who are interested in taking part in a clinical trial should talk with their doctor.
