Cancer is so often an agonizing diagnosis, one that can be that much more difficult for a patient to accept when the origin of the cancer cannot be traced. Novel genetic tests are just one of a few new options that may help us in situations where imaging, therapy, and other genetic markers have not been effective. Dr. F. Anthony Greco, director of the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center in Nashville, tells us that we appear to be making progress toward new ways to diagnose cancers of unknown primary origin. Dr. Larry Kaskel hosts.
