BCI (Breast Cancer Index) in Canada
I live in Vancouver. Just finished 5 years of Tamoxifen. I recently discovered the Breast Cancer Index test (breastcancer.org Screening and Testing page has a link to some information) , which can apparently identify those who can benefit from extended (10 year) hormonal therapy. It's a genomic test (like Oncotype DX or MammaPrint).
I really want to get this test done! But the company, Biotheranostics, does not take referrals from Canadian doctors :-(
Does anyone here know if there is a way to get around this? Have you been able to get the BCI test from Canada? I'm fortunate enough to be able to pay for it if necessary, but I can't even get it ordered...
