Just as every patient is unique, so is every tumor. And when your doctor orders genomic testing, they’re actually searching for the specific key to unlocking which treatment approach may be most appropriate for you.
Unlike a genetic test, which assesses your hereditary risk for cancer, a genomic test looks at your cancer tissue to provide information on how your specific tumor might behave. It identifies changes in DNA that may be driving the growth of your tumor, as well as other vital information, such as how likely your cancer is to spread.
