Globally the rate of patients suffering from cancer is on the rise, leading to research and development of new approaches toward more effective treatments. One such concept is called Precision Medicine, a treatment that focuses on the cause of cancer using genetic and molecular information to help in diagnosis, treatment options, and drug selection--as well as prevention of the disease and promotion of good health. Precision Medicine treats cancer by focusing on abnormal genes in cells that can lead to cancer and uses specific drugs that provide more effective treatment. Genetic testing is the most accurate and complete examination of the body and is useful for many medical purposes.

Genetic testing related to cancer is useful both in the prevention and treatment of the disease. The people who should receive genetic testing are those with a family history of cancer and the cancer patient who wants to know the possible root cause of the disease; this will also benefit others in the family. A few of the advantages of Precision Medicine are that optimal treatments can be chosen for each patient, helps find and prevent cancer for high risk groups, and not only assists in cure of the disease, but also prevention of possible recurrence. Currently, genetic testing can be used in many types of cancer testing, such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer. This testing method is truly a breakthrough in the fight to prevent and effectively treat cancer.
