Cancer Genetic Test

What is Cancer?

Cancer is defined by the National Cancer Institute as a collection of diseases in which abnormal cells can divide and spread to nearby tissue.

Cancer Prevalence

Cancer is the third leading cause of death. It is the third among nationals and the third among expatriates.

Cancer testing

By testing your tumor for genomic alterations, you and your doctor can better understand what is causing it to grow and spread.




Genomic Cancer Testing

Why should I ask my Doctor about Genomic Cancer Testing?

Genomic cancer testing has the potential to: PERSONALIZE cancer care by helping you better understand your diagnosis and begin appropriate therapies earlier.

  • INFORM doctors who can recommend more appropriate treatments because genomic cancer testing reveals the specific drivers of your cancer.

  • REDUCE the number of treatments patients try by identifying more targeted treatments.

  • ADVANCE the use of precision medicine by identifying your cancer's underlying genomic make-up, rather than SI where the tumor is located.
Unique treatment

How does genomic cancer testing change my unique treatment journey?

Each person's cancer diagnosis is different. Yet with TRADITIONAL CANCER MEDICINE, patients have been treated the same. Today, there is a shift towards PRECISION MEDICINE, allowing doctors to offer more individualized treatments to many patients.

  • TRADITIONAL MEDICINE

    TRADITIONAL MEDICINE is a treatment and prevention strategy that is developed for a specific tumor.


  • PRECISION MEDICINE

    PRECISION MEDICINE involves treatment tailored to the genetic changes in each person's cancer.

Tests

What can these tests find?



  • Genomic cancer tests can identify different alterations across a broad range of tumor types that can occur in any part of the body.


  • Types of genomic alterations that "drive" the growth of tumors include gene fusions, mutation, amplification, Protein overexpression, etc,
