Anyone on here dealt with secondary Breast cancer/skin metastasis and know about Electochemotherapy? Know this isn’t curable condition. Anyone know if any hospitals in U.S. offer electrochemotherapy and if they do, where? Weighing options of what to do. Thanks, trixie

Hi trixie,

Welcome to GRACE. We don’t have any specific information or discussions on electrochemotherapy, but here are a couple of discussions of that technique:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2669236/

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4069212/

Though I couldn’t find a list of all the cancer centers in the U.S. which offer electrochemotherapy, a search on clinicaltrials.gov produced a list of centers which have participated in clinical trials using this technique: https://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?cond=melanoma&term=electrochemotherapy&cntry1=NA%3AUS&state1=&Search=Search

The participating centers are shown in the far right column, If none of these are convenient to you, you could try contacting one or more of them to see if they know of other, closer centers.

Good luck.
