What’s precision medicine?
With precision medicine, your doctor chooses cancer treatments based on your genetic makeup. You may also hear precision medicine called precision oncology, personalized medicine or targeted therapy.
Benefits of precision medicine
If you’re a candidate for precision medicine, your care team may be able to target the cancer cells in your body more effectively. For example, some gene mutations make cancer cells more likely to be affected by certain medications. That means your doctors can begin your care with the treatments that are most likely to work well.
Gene profiling tests
Tests help your doctors understand the unique genetic makeup of your tumor. This may help them predict how your specific cancer could develop and progress.
