Information for breast cancer patients

Welcome to the Patient Information Guide compiled by the German Breast Group. The German Breast Group, Germany’s largest breast cancer study group, conducts independent academic research into new types of therapy.

This section of our website provides useful information about breast cancer and how therapy trials are carried out, along with a glossary of specialist terms. Our guide explains what breast cancer is, how the disease develops and what can be done to prevent it. We also offer a test enabling you to assess your own risk of developing breast cancer.

In addition, we have compiled a list of links to further counselling sites together with the contact data of our breast centres. Should you wish to participate in a trial, please contact a centre near you.
