Our team of doctors at the UCSF Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center have designed a follow-up program to meet the needs of all patients who are a year out from their cancer diagnosis, who are at high risk for breast cancer and have had a year of stable exams, or who have been treated for other related breast problems. Our program allows us to develop better ways to get information to you and to learn more about what happens to each of you.
At the UCSF Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center, we hope to provide you with information and support that will enable you to experiment and to explore ways of feeling better that best match you and your needs. Below you will find links to some of the educational information that are applicable for individuals with follow-up after breast cancer treatment. In addition further information can be gathered at our Cancer Resource Center or by talking with your doctor.
Clinical trials are formal, controlled protocols designed to test the effectiveness of new treatments, including novel drugs, types of intervention or combinations of therapy. If you are interested in obtaining more information on specific breast cancer clinical trials offered at UCSF Medical Center, please visit the clinical trial section on the UCSF Breast Care Center website. You also can visit the National Cancer Institute's CancerNet, where you will find access to PDQ, the NCI-sponsored database of clinical trials nationwide.

Enrollment is based on satisfying eligibility criteria; final determination for inclusion in a study is made solely at the discretion of the principal investigator.
