I was told my lung cancer is a mix of adeno and squamous, 50/50 in one lobe and 20/80 in the other. Both tumors tested ALK+, but neither had the adeno and squamous separated out for testing. Is it clear BOTH types of cancer cells are ALK+ (test says 83% response rate)? should I insist on the cell types being separated and tested separately? (the mostly squamous tumor is considered a "metastasis" from the mixed one).
