Hereditary breast cancer / Posted 1 year ago
Looking at circulating tumour cells in the blood will help researchers learn more about why treatment works better in some women than others and about how cancer spreads.
The aims of this study are to find out
•If cancer cells in the blood can be easily detected and counted
•More about breast cancer, to help improve treatment in the future
•More about how breast cancer spreads
You will not have any direct benefit from taking part in this study, and it is unlikely to change your treatment plan in any way. But the results of the study will be used to help women in the future.
