What If I’m Told I Can’t Get My Tumor Tested?

Because targeted therapy and tumor testing for lung cancer is still a relatively new form of treatment, some doctors and oncologists may not be familiar with this new line of research. It is very acceptable and strongly advisable to get a second opinion, especially if your doctor is not familiar with tumor testing and targeted therapy. There are lung cancer experts all across the country at various medical centers and cancer centers that are available to offer second opinions.
