Advanced Genomic Testing

Every cancer, like every patient, is different. Genomic tumor assessments help identify the DNA alterations that are driving the growth of a particular tumor. As we understand more about these gene mutations, we are better able to provide cancer treatment therapies that specifically target changes in the tumor's genomic profile. Information about genomic changes that are unique to your individual cancer may help us determine treatments that may be appropriate for you. It's the promise of precision cancer treatment—a focus on the individual tumor in the individual patient.

Since genomic testing may not be right for every patient, your oncologist will help determine if you are a good candidate for the assessments.
