Know the Facts

A genomic test gives you important, unique personalized information about your breast cancer, but not all eligible patients receive a test before making their treatment decision

Based on numerous studies, including the landmark TAILORx trial of over 10,000 women using the Oncotype DX test, a vast majority of early stage breast cancer patients don’t need chemotherapy1

Age alone shouldn’t determine your treatment options. Understand your unique breast cancer to know what treatments are best for you.
