    Hopefully soon the Kaiser system will be doing so. For now they only do Lung Cancer Genome testing for those will Adenocarcinoma pathology. Mine is not.

    Heck it was just this past summer that the first published research on genome analysis for Squamous Cell carcinoma primary of the lung was published in a few more years the testing will be established and available.   When it is I will have my residual tumor tested, for sure.

    Life is not a problem to be solved but an adventure to be experienced.

    •  He named about 5 or 6 genomes that they test for. (5+ / 0-)

      But I wasn't paying all that much attention I was watching him for how he acted with other folks besides me. (He acts the same)

      I do remember something about the testing that has been fast tracked. Something happened in the midst of the testing that showed them they had all they needed to act.

      They expect the testing to get even faster from now on.

      This is my very non scientific report on it. I was also eating fantastic pasta and noticing how gorgeous and kind my oncologist is.

      Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.
