Research is needed to make changes in how lobular breast cancer is understood, diagnosed, treated and monitored.
At LBCUK, we our committed to working in collaboration with other researchers and medical institutions across the UK and internationally, and to producing our own patient driven research.
We have already begun our own research to understand and identify the needs and concerns of people diagnosed with lobular in the UK, and ensure that we remain patient focused as a charity.
Our future fundraising will focus on raising more money to support lobular specific research.
Rather than duplicate resources, we are working with our international partner Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance in the United States. You can access their comprehensive research library here featuring over 200 studies on lobular breast cancer from around the world.
Our Research Projects
Help us to ensure we are delivering what patients need by getting involved in our first LBCUK study on patient needs and issues.
Missed Cancers: Lobular Breast Cancer that has been missed on screening
With a focus on patient wellbeing, this study, led by De Montfort University MA student Victoria Rake, aims to find out the experience of having cancer that has been missed on mammogram.
