My Physician Does Not Recommend Molecular Profiling
At this point, you may have already consulted with your oncologist about the possibility of molecular profiling. If you find that he or she doesn’t recommend molecular profiling, it may be because you are not an appropriate candidate at this point in your treatment. You should seek to understand what disqualifies you from being a candidate for profiling right now. Also, keep in mind, that technology and the biology of a tumor may change over time. Profiling may still be an option later on in your therapy.
