Genderless Breast Cancer Research: We Need More
"Breast cancer is a genderless disease with research concentrated on only one gender. Historically, males and other genders either have been mostly excluded from clinical trials for drugs to treat breast cancer. So, these cohorts are often forgotten when it comes to research.
Because this group makes up less than one percent of new diagnoses, their participation in studies is often regarded as statistically irrelevant. This leads to treatment for all other genders based on women's treatment. While this treatment is often very successful, further research could eliminate a gap in treatment outcomes that was discovered in a recent study."
