Lung Cancer Tumor Testing Videos and Resources

Progress is being made every day in the fight against lung cancer and one important area of innovation has been in precision medicine. Precision medicine in lung cancer is treating a person's cancer based on the specific makeup of their tumor. The purpose of tumor testing is to look for changes in the cells that are causing the cancer to grow. Incorporating both tumor testing and precision medicine into a person's treatment plan creates a more targeted or customized approach to treating lung cancer, rather than a one-size-fits-all treatment.

Tumor testing and precision medicine can be confusing, but our resources break it down for you and help make sense out of this exciting area in lung cancer treatment.
