Expert Video - When should biomarker testing be done in NSCLC?
Cancer expert Dr. Robert Winn talks about the importance of discussing biomarker testing as soon as possible, even before getting a definitive diagnosis of non-small-cell lung cancer. Patients should also ask about removing additional tissue or repeating biomarker testing if samples are taken, in order to yield the most accurate results. Dr. Winn encourages patients to take advantage of precision medicine to receive lung cancer treatments tailored to their specific mutations.
