Early markers in breast cancer detection

Volunteers are needed to review patient information for this study

Link to organisation:

Full description:

We are soon to be recruiting two groups of women into a study to find out at what stage markers, known to be a sign of cancer, can be detected in the blood. The first group will include women who have been recalled to Breast Units because of an abnormal mammogram, the second are women with a strong family history of breast cancer. We would like women with some experience of breast cancer to review the patient documents to ensure they are easy to understand and will not cause unnecessary anxiety.
