Longitudinal Assessment of Arthralgia and Related Symptoms in Breast Cancer
The goal of this research study is to learn more about what it is like for patients with breast cancer to receive treatment with the drug anastrozole. Researchers want to learn about possible symptoms, such as joint pain, that patients may experience during treatment. Researchers also want to learn more about which patients are most likely to have joint symptoms by looking at certain proteins from routine blood draw samples.
