Long Term Follow-up for Early Detection of Lung Cancer in Current or Former Smokers

Lung

This research trial studies the long term follow-up for early detection of lung cancer in current or former smokers. Following up on smokers by collecting and analyzing specimens in the laboratory, performing chest computed tomography (CT) scans, as well as reviewing medical records may help doctors detect lung cancer at an earlier stage.

Animal-Assisted Interactions in Improving Quality of Life in Children with Advanced, Relapsed, or Refractory Cancer and Their Parents

This trial studies how well animal-assisted interactions work in improving quality of life in children with cancer that has spread extensively to other anatomic sites or is no longer responding to treatment, has come back, or does not respond to treatment, and their parents. Having animal-assisted therapy (AAT) visits on a routine basis with a trained animal-handler and his / her dog may help to make the cancer treatment process less stressful for children and their parents.

Fluid Measurements and MRI in Determining Biomarkers of Lymphatic Dysfunction in Patients with Breast Cancer

This trial uses fluid measurements of the arm and MRI to determine biomarkers of lymphatic dysfunction in patients with breast cancer. Studying the lymphatic system (the part of your body that helps to process and clear waste products) in different ways will help doctors understand more about lymphedema (excess fluid after lymph nodes are removed) and help with prevention and management of lymphedema in patients with breast cancer.

Percutaneous Transhepatic Biliary Drainage or Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiography in Treating Participants with Suspected Malignant Bile Duct Obstruction

Liver

This phase III trial studies how well percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage works versus endoscopic retrograde cholangiography in treating participants with suspected cancerous (malignant) bile duct obstruction. Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage is a procedure that uses x-rays to guide a needle through the skin into the bile duct to allow for drainage of the blockage through external tubes. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography is a procedure that combines the use of a lighted camera that goes down through the mouth and x-rays to diagnose and treat certain problems of the biliary ductal system, and permits drainage of the blockage through internal stents. It is not yet known whether percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage or endoscopic retrograde cholangiography is most effective in treating participants with suspected malignant bile duct obstruction.
