Are you planning to have breast surgery?
Many women hesitate to take breast cancer prevention medication for fear of side effects. We are trying to reduce the side effects of these medications by using a medicated gel, applied to the breast skin. Currently, two of our studies are looking at the use of medicated gel as possible breast cancer prevention methods. Applying medicated gel to the breast skin in the weeks leading up to your breast surgery will not treat your current condition and will not interfere with your surgery, but will help us find out if this may be a safe and effective method for breast cancer prevention.
