Discover how comprehensive genomic profiling from Foundation Medicine may help open up treatment possibilities for you1–3

Your cancer’s mutations

Cancer occurs due to changes in DNA and/or RNA called mutations that affect the way your cells work and grow.4,5

Each person’s cancer is unique because DNA mutations between cancers differ in type and number.6,7

Even if you have the same type of cancer as someone else, your DNA mutations may differ to theirs, and you may need different treatment.6–8

Your care team might suggest testing your cancer to find out what mutations you have in your DNA and/or RNA.

If certain mutations are found in your cancer cells your doctor may be able to give you a more precise treatment based on this finding. There might be cases where either no relevant mutation is found or no targeted treatment option is available for the mutation that has been identified. This is also valuable information, supporting further treatment planning.6–11

Precision medicine increases the likelihood you will find a targeted therapy, which may improve your chance of responding well or could mean that you experience fewer side effects.3

Knowing the mutations in your cancer can help you and your doctor understand your treatment options and may help to personalise your treatment.6–11
