We suggest that you search for cancer clinical trials every time you review your treatment options.
Why? Because studies only enroll patients at very specific times:
Just before a biopsy (to study tissue from a tumor)
Just before the first surgery or radiation treatment (neo-adjuvant studies)
Just after surgery or radiation treatment (adjuvant studies)
- Soon after a cancer has recurred or spread (metastasized)
- Soon after you learn that your cancer is spreading despite current treatment
