It is very important to insist on having comprehensive genetic profiling of your lung cancer tissue.
Some lung cancer patients report being told that there is no treatment option for them. If no biomarker testing has previously been done for these patients, the next step is to make sure to get the biomarker testing done, if at all possible. For more information:
- Don’t Guess Test – an initiative, supported by Lung Cancer Foundation of America, along with 15 other lung cancer advocacy organizations, aimed to expand awareness and educate patients about precision medicine and the importance of comprehensive biomarker testing in lung cancer.
- NCI-Designated Cancer Centers – NCI-designated cancer centers deliver cutting-edge cancer treatments to patients in communities across the United States. Find a center near you and make an appointment for a second opinion.
