Tell a Friend: Tumor Testing

“I am lucky my doctor had the foresight to test my tumor for mutations. Not every eligible lung cancer patient is so fortunate.” – Jennifer N., Lung Cancer Survivor.

Not all lung cancers are the same and so they shouldn’t be treated that way. Now there is a way to get more detailed information about the makeup of the tumor. It involves testing tumor tissue for mutations in its DNA and levels of specific proteins. Comprehensive tumor testing provides a full picture of your unique lung cancer. The more information you have about the makeup of your tumor, the better informed you and your doctor will be to make treatment decisions.

The sad fact is that not all lung cancer patients who are eligible for tumor testing get their tissue tested. This can impact their treatment outcomes. That’s why the American Lung Association's LUNG FORCE is spreading the word about the importance of comprehensive lung cancer tumor testing. We are asking lung cancer patients, advocates and healthcare professionals to get the message out by telling a friend about lung cancer tumor testing. It could make a world of difference for someone facing lung cancer.
