Many individuals begin their personalized medicine journey at diagnosis.
Genetic information, such as biomarkers, can be used to diagnose, confirm and provide more information about a diagnosis. Diagnostic tests can include blood biopsies, genetic testing or molecular diagnostics. It’s important to understand your diagnosis and talk to your genetic counselor, clinician or other healthcare provider about any questions you have about your diagnosis. It’s also helpful to discuss when and if certain diagnostic tests can help you and your medical team use personalized medicine to help treat the disease or disorder.
