Genomic Testing

Genomic testing for cancer looks at the interaction of certain genes with your cancer cells. Testing is performed on a tissue biopsy to help physicians determine if there are genomic mutations affecting the growth of your cancer. This information is then used to help target treatment to be the most effective.

It is important to keep in mind that genomic testing is not appropriate for all cancer types. And, even when the test is recommended, it may not provide definitive results that can be successfully used in your treatment.

The physicians at the Cancer Center of Sarasota Manatee are experienced in incorporating genomic testing into treatments plans. This type of individualized testing and evaluation of each patient exactly follow the approach to care offered by the Cancer Center of Sarasota Manatee.
