What is ALK+ cancer?
ALK+ is a type of genetic mutation driven cancer. There is no known cause, and it is currently thought to be incurable once it has spread. The vast majority of ALK+ patients have lung cancer, but it can also present in many other cancers including skin, brain, nervous system, bowel and breast. It is frequently observed in some cancers that predominantly affect children such as neuroblastoma and glioblastoma.
