Let’s get in a fight.
The research money you raise can’t find an end to breast cancer without people getting in the research study ring to become a part of the fight to find cures and new treatments. Human health needs human help™! Explore some breast cancer cancer studies below that need people like you to join.

Bye bye biopsy: Test a breast cancer screening that doesn’t hurt and might be more accurate
About 1.6 million U.S. women have their breasts tested for cancer every year with a biopsy. Team up to try a new way to find cancer using scans. It might pave the way for painless cancer detection so women can find and treat disease faster.
Are you at risk for breast cancer? Test getting two quick body scans a year. It might pave the way to better detect cancer.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. And the earlier you find it, the better you can treat it. If you’re at risk for breast cancer, test getting a quick body scan twice a year. You’ll help find out if these body scans might find breast cancer better than current methods.
Did your breast or stomach cancer come back? This new medicine might help you live longer
About one in four of you with breast or stomach cancer have high levels of a certain protein in your body. Meds can stop the protein from helping your cancer grow. But if cancer returns, your new tumors start resisting those meds. Try new medicine that might work against those new tumors.
Test a new med that might help your advanced breast cancer better than regular treatment
Almost one third of women with breast cancer have high levels of a protein that lets cancer cells grow out of control. In advanced cases, up to one third don't survive past five years. Test a new med that could block that protein. It might help stop your cancer from growing and help you live longer.
A simple blood test might find the best breast cancer treatment for you. No surgeries or large needles needed!
Some of you with breast cancer have genetic errors in tumor cells that let cancer grow. Luckily there’s meds to target those errors. But docs need a tumor sample to check, which means surgery or big needles. Whether you have cancer or not, help find if a simple blood draw might do the trick instead.
Can a pill that helps women with hot flashes prevent breast cancer too?
If you have certain cells in your milk ducts, you may be at risk for breast cancer. Up to 50% of you with these cells get invasive breast cancer if left untreated. Try a menopause medicine to see if it can stop these cells from turning into cancer. It may one day be an alternative to surgery.
