Gaining information on your  lung cancer tumor characteristics at the genetic level may give information that is useful for making lung cancer treatment decisions; those are sometimes called “biomarkers.” Some lung cancer clinical trials require the presence or absence of a certain biomarker / genetic alteration. Those trials may require this information in advance of application to the trial, while others may ask for a biopsy of your tumor, and perform the testing on site.
