Understanding your cancer and personal treatment path

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 mutations differ in type and number and between cancer types.6,7

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

Your cancer and DNA mutations


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

DNA mutations and treatment options

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

What is comprehensive genomic profiling?

Genomic testing encompasses single biomarker testing, hotspot testing and comprehensive genomic profiling. They all test your cancer sample for mutations but work in different ways.
