Questions & Experts: A Surgical Oncologist Answers Your Questions About Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

Oftentimes, breast cancer patients have questions and concerns about their diagnosis and their health that they are unable to get the answers to. Whether it's because of limited time with their primary healthcare provider or because they don't have access to a specialist, many times, their questions go unanswered. To address this, Canadian Breast Cancer Network has put together a Q&E: Questions and Experts series in hopes that patients are able to ask our hosted experts any questions that they may not otherwise be able to ask.

Dr. Mark Basik is the Herbert Black Professor of Surgical Oncology at McGill University, and the Director of the Cancer Genomics and Translational Research Laboratory at the Lady Davis Institute and a Surgical Oncologist at the Jewish General Hospital.  His medical practice and research are focused on treating breast cancer, especially hard-to-treat breast cancer subtypes, such as triple negative breast cancer, and developing new blood tests to monitor patients with breast cancer.
