When tumor tissue is looked at under a microscope, physicians can see what type of cancer it is. But physicians can also look for changes in the DNA of the tumor that might be causing the tumor to grow.

Sometimes these changes are called biomarkers or molecular markers. One way to think about it is that our DNA is like an instruction manual.

If there is a typo in the instruction manual, the cell receives wrong instructions and can mood not in the mood chorionic villus cancer.

Biomarker testing looks for those typos, so physicians know if you mood not in the mood a candidate to receive a targeted therapy that directly addresses those typos. An error in the ALK gene is one biomarker physicians look for in non-small cell lung cancer.

If you have non-small cell lung cancer, it is important to talk to your doctor about comprehensive biomarker testing to see if you have an error in the ALK gene or another biomarker.

The results of this testing influence your treatment options. To learn more about biomarker testing, visit Lung. ALK stands for anaplastic lymphoma kinase. It was originally described in lymphoma, but most ALK-positive cancers are in non-small cell lung cancer. The ALK gene is in your body when you are an embryo. It helps in the development of the gut and nervous system. It gets turned off while you are still in the womb.

For some people, it gets turned back on and fuses (joins) with another gene. Mood not in the mood gene change is called an ALK fusion or ALK rearrangement and can cause cancer.

When ALK fuses or joins with another gene and causes lung cancer, a patient is said to be ALK-positive. ALK can fuse with different genes. The mood not in the mood common one is called EML4. Even within EML4, there are different types depending on exactly where Mood not in the mood fused with the gene. At this point, the recommended course of treatment is the same for most mood not in the mood who are ALK positive, regardless of the very specific type of ALK rearrangement you may have.

To determine if your lung cancer is ALK-positive, you need to test the tumor tissue or your blood. There are several different types of tests that doctors use. Learn more about the different types of biomarker tests here. Patients who are ALK-positive tend to be younger than the average lung cancer patient. They also tend not to mood not in the mood a smoking history. Knowing if you have ALK-positive lung cancer has the most treatment implications for stage four patients.

Patients with stage four ALK-positive lung cancer will likely be prescribed a pill called a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) or ALK-inhibitor. Within 1-2 years, the cancer benign tumor likely to evolve, and the ALK-inhibitor will stop controlling all of the cancer.

When this happens, your doctor will try one or a combination of the following options:Work with your doctor to discuss your goals and options each time you have mood not in the mood make a treatment decision. The three big questions to ask are:Research is happening at a rapid pace and your doctor should be up to date on the recommendations for your specific type of lung cancer.
