Every pancreatic tumor is different. Patients who receive treatment based on their tumor’s biological characteristics have better outcomes. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network strongly recommends molecular profiling of your tumor to help determine the best treatment options.
Your healthcare team will work with Tempus to submit a tissue sample for molecular profiling. Once Tempus receives the tumor tissue, please allow 14-21 days for the complete report of personalized treatment options to be emailed to your doctor.
Medical procedures – including biopsies – will be billed to the patient’s insurance. The patient will be responsible for any co-pay, co-insurance or insurance deductible associated with a procedure to obtain tumor tissue.
Should insurance coverage issues arise, our Know Your Tumor CareLine (in partnership with the Patient Advocate Foundation) may be able to help.
