I agree with the previous comment. This means more personal medical information will be available which may be a good or bad thing depending on your viewpoint on the matter.

This is true--except for the cases in which the tumor is identified and extirpated in the patient via some kind of mechanical, thermal or toxic agent that does not rely on details of up- or down-regulated pathways... And this process may bypass the pathologist entirely.

Yes, and in many cases more people than the treating physician have access to that genetic information (for research), so "personalized" is a misnomer. Patients will think it means medicine is more personal but the reality is that it means their personal medical information is more available. It should be called pinpoint medicine or something like that.
