Genetic Mutation Analysis (Next Generation Sequencing): Newer technology today allows cancer tissue to be tested for specific mutations that could lead to more effective treatment options. Our clinical team may suggest a sample of your tumor be analyzed to determine which mutations caused your cancer. This knowledge could lead to treatments that are specific to your cancer. If this is recommended we take care of obtaining your tissues, sending it to the appropriate company for analysis and help minimize any financial costs for the testing.
