- Question from JLack: How can patients find doctors/investigators who are specifically knowledgeable about treating hormone-negative breast tumors? What studies are in progress?
- Answers - Kathy D. Miller, M.D. I don't think you will find anyone who specifically focuses or limits their practice to ER-negative breast cancers. There are many resources available to help identify ongoing clinical trials in your area or for your type of breast cancer. Those include the National Cancer Institute's website, www.cancer.gov or their toll-free number, 1-800-4-CANCER. Your local doctor can also point you to clinical trials or specialized research centers in your area that can provide more information.
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Hormone-Receptor-Negative Breast Cancer featured Kathy D. Miller, M.D., Marisa Weiss, M.D., and moderator Jennifer Armstrong, M.D. answering your questions about a wide range of issues related to hormone-receptor-negative breast cancer.
