Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as bone mineral density testing and x-ray, help
measure bone loss in women receiving treatment for breast cancer. The test results may help
doctors plan better treatment.

PURPOSE: This phase III trial is studying bone density and bone loss in postmenopausal women
with breast cancer receiving treatment in clinical trial IBCSG-1-98.
