A conference for Tasmanian breast cancer patients and survivors has been told about new medical research and therapies.
About 200 people have attended the free conference in Launceston over the past two days.
Maureen Holland from the Tasmanian Breast Cancer Network says experts from Launceston and interstate have spoken about reconstructive surgery, body image and genetics.
"We also had Dr Richard de Boer talk about what is the latest in breast cancer updates."
"He just explained to us in layman's language we would say, everybody is trying to do their best to find new, extra things to actually help us all. His major interests are in the hormonal therapies and bone health," Ms Holland said.
