Genomic alterations are changes that occur within the DNA of cancer cells. Some of these changes accelerate the growth of cancer. Some respond well to specific therapies. With a clear picture of the genomic alterations in your tumor, your doctor may be able to recommend a targeted therapy. In general, targeted therapies have fewer side effects than broad-based chemotherapy. They can also be more selective in stopping the spread of a cancer when other treatments have failed.
