Cancer Treatment

People differ from one another in many ways, including how our bodies work. How our bodies differ is still being studied; but some key differences are already known. With this knowledge, medical practices and products can be tailored to match your body's needs. Medicine can also be tailored based on features of the disease and lifestyle factors. This approach is called personalized medicine. Other names for personalized medicine are precision medicine, individualized medicine, and genomic medicine.

Here, patients and their caregivers can learn the different ways that cancer treatment can be tailored for a particular patient's needs.
