More and more, cancer treatment is transitioning from one-size-fits-all toward an era of personalized treatment based on an individual patient's cancer characteristics. Jeffrey Ross, MD, explains what immunotherapy and targeted therapies are, how DNA sequencing is done, and what patients should do if they receive a diagnosis of cancer but it is not known in what part of their body the cancer began.
