How to Enroll

The Breast Cancer Registry of Greater Cincinnati (BCRGC) is a local program designed to obtain information from and about women and men diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Registry is voluntary. Participants enroll by signing a consent form and completing a questionnaire about their breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and reoccurrence; family history of breast cancer; environmental and occupational exposures; residential history, etc. All the information is confidential and protected by UC’s strict standards for protecting confidentiality and the rights of people who participate in registries and research studies (Privacy Policy). The Registry is not a clinical trial. There are no treatments or testing of drugs. Any woman or man ever diagnosed with breast cancer is eligible to enroll in the Registry. The purpose of the Registry is to support research about the causes of breast cancer, a crucial first step in prevention.
