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 can determine whether the drugs will work if administered in the body, helping to avoid unnecessary toxicity to you.
- This service also helps your care team determine the best combinations of chemotherapy to use for your particular type of vaginal cancer.
