Bulletin 4 - Cancer: A personal perspective

Lying on a cold table in an unfamiliar place and undergoing a core biopsy was probably one of the most traumatic events of my life. I was frightened, confused, hurting and, yes, I cried – but not just for myself. As I lay there, experiencing a needle digging around inside me and having small pieces of fl esh cut from my body, I thought about the animals in laboratories who are subjected to similar experiences. Of course, I had been given some analgesic, the process was explained to me and ultimately it was for my own benefit... not so the case for lab animals.
