Every pancreatic cancer patient is different. Patients who receive treatment based on their biology can live longer. PanCAN strongly recommends all pancreatic cancer patients get genetic testing for inherited mutations as soon as possible after diagnosis and biomarker testing of their tumor tissue to help determine the best treatment options. Patients should discuss both tests with their care team. The tests can be available through their treating institution or PanCAN’s Know Your Tumor® precision medicine service. Know Your Tumor was created to understand the unique differences in each patient’s tumor – and to determine whether these differences can impact which treatment options may work best for each patient.
