Dr. Marcia Brose, MD, PhD, Medical Oncologist and Associate Professor of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania discussing the how Genomic Testing is changing the way doctors look at Cancer. The doctor will discuss Information about TRK fusion cancer. Cancer Awareness Months bring our attention to specific tumor types, but new advances in oncology are paving the way toward a new understanding of cancer – focusing on genomic alterations that drive cancer growth, rather than where it appears in the body.
Nichol Miller, TRK Fusion Cancer Patient will discuss her personal diagnosis and cancer journey. Nichol Miller, a 45-year-old mother of three from Portland, Oregon, woke up one day and discovered a large knot in her leg. She went for a CT scan and was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma. After being treated with chemotherapy, it was clear that it was not working, and the tumor had grown. Nichol had surgery to remove the tumor in her leg — but soon thereafter, a new CT scan showed the cancer had spread to her lungs. When Nichol was diagnosed, her doctor had ordered genomic testing on the tumor. Her doctor re-examined the results and found that her tumor tested positive for a genomic alteration that may be responsible for the growth and spread of tumors.
