Diagnosed or cancer has returned
- What type of lung cancer do I have?
- What stage is my lung cancer? Has it spread outside my lung?
- What are the treatment options for my lung cancer?
- Should my tumor be tested for biomarkers?
Not tested for biomarkers yet
- Which biomarkers should be tested for my tumor profile? Why?
- How could molecular testing affect my course of treatment?
- Is there enough biopsy tissue for this testing? Will I need another biopsy?
- How much does molecular testing cost? Is it covered by my insurance?
- How long will it take to get the results of this testing?
Got test results and exploring treatment options
- What molecular tests were performed, and what were the results?
- How could these test results affect my course of treatment?
- What treatment approach do you recommend, and why?
- Are there other biomarker tests that should be performed?
- Can I acquire new or different lung cancer biomarkers over time?
Learning about clinical trials
- How do I know if I am a potential candidate for a clinical trial?
- Are there clinical trials that might help me based on my test results?
- Where can I get information about clinical trials?
Remember, there are no guarantees that your tumor will test positive for biomarkers. And your doctor may not recommend molecular profiling for you. But these are some questions you may consider asking.
