What is genomic testing?

Genomic tests look at your specific tumor’s genes, to help find out what’s driving its growth.  Using gene expression testing to help design a tailored treatment plan is called personalized medicine.  These are not the same as genetic tests that determine your inherited risk or hereditary predisposition for cancer.

Your physician will assess many factors prior to determining your treatment plan, including the size of the tumor, lymph node involvement, and the hormone receptor status of your cancer.  These factors, along with your tumor’s genomic profile, can help you and your physician make the most informed treatment decisions for your specific type of cancer.

Your tumor is unique, your treatment should be too
