10. Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are available for patients with cancer. Enrolling in such clinical trials may offer the option to test new therapies/drugs, especially when standard medications have failed. That way, scientists, and doctors can determine the overall benefits and risks of new drugs for breast cancer. These studies may not only help find new ways to manage breast cancer but also identify the best protocols according to the stage of the disease while comparing the results with existing protocols.
A small percentage of breast cancer patients participate in clinical trials. If you want to take part in a clinical trial, you need to discuss your local and national options with your physician.
