What is Cancer Genomics?
The study of cancer genomes has revealed abnormalities in genes which prone the development and growth of many types of cancer. This understanding has improved our knowledge of the biology of most cancers and brought about new methods of diagnosing and treating the disease.
How will cancer genomics benefit my patients?
Early diagnosis is the key to treating potentially serious conditions. The earlier a patient begins treatment the greater the chances of full recovery. Our Genetic Counselors are trained to guide your patient through the emotional, psychological, and social consequences. This also enables the clinician to determine disease aggressiveness, therefore facilitating a more informed treatment plan.
