The decision to join is up to you.

  • First, find out if there are studies that are right for you. Ask your doctor or nurse.
  • Then, think about why you may want to take part in that study. Weigh this against why you may not want to join.
  • Be aware that choosing to take part in a cancer prevention trial is just one way you can take care of your health.
  • Talk with your family, friends, and doctor. But YOU are the one who should be happy with your final decision.
