How to Ask Your Doctor About Clinical Trials - Metastatic Breast Cancer Trial Talk

Resources & Support

As a woman or man living with metastatic breast cancer, you may have thought about whether a clinical trial would be a good option for your care. But if your doctor has never talked to you about clinical trials, you may not know when or how to broach the subject.

Below you can find tips on how to talk to your doctor about clinical trials as well as checklists of questions to ask your doctor that you can bring with you to your next appointment. If your doctor doesn’t want to talk to you about clinical trials, you may want to consider getting a second opinion from another doctor. (You can learn more about how to get a second opinion in the September 2019 MTT.)
