The study will involve asking thousands of patients like you some survey questions, as well as collecting samples of blood, urine and tumor tissue. Here’s how the study works:
• Information is gathered about the patient’s medical history — generally during regular visits with his or her doctor.
• If a biopsy is recommended, a portion of tissue removed from any biopsy is submitted for research.
• If surgery is needed, we ask permission from the patient to study the excess cancer tissue that is removed. Cancer tissue removed during surgery normally is discarded.
• Blood tests and/or urine tests will be ordered for research purposes.
