Tumor molecular profiling for vaginal cancer
If you have surgery or a biopsy, we’ll collect a sample of your vaginal cancer tumor. Then, we’ll use tumor molecular profiling to test for the presence of a variety of enzymes and genetic mutations to identify which therapies are likely to have a positive impact.
- By testing the vaginal cancer chemotherapy drugs outside of the body, your care team may determine whether the drugs are more likely to have a positive impact if administered in the body, helping to avoid unnecessary toxicity to you.
- This service also helps your care team determine combinations of chemotherapy to use for your particular type of vaginal cancer.
