Breast Cancer Clinical Trials & Research at St. Joseph Health Medical Group

In the U.S., breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women after skin cancer. It can occur in both men and women. The most common type of breast cancer is ductal carcinoma, which begins in the cells of the ducts. Breast cancer can also begin in the cells of the lobules and in other tissues in the breast. Invasive breast cancer is breast cancer that has spread from where it began in the ducts or lobules to surrounding tissue.

St. Joseph Health Medical Group is currently enrolling patients for the following breast cancer clinical trials:
