ALK positive, Stage IV adenocarcinoma, never smoker

Recommended Posts


I am Gloria. I was diagnosed with stage IV adenocarcinoma nsc lung cancer in December 2015. I am ALK positive. I have been taking alectinib since July 2016. So far the cancer has decreased. The side effects of alectinib have been noteworthy. I would like to hear from other people on this medication. Thanks.

Welcome here and good news about alectinib.  Unfortunately, I don't have any experience with the drug but I'm sure others do.

Look around the forum and get to know us.  This is a good place to lean about living with lung cancer.

Stay the course.

Hi, Gloria,

Welcome to LCSC. I am glad that alectinib is working where it counts! I have heard from several ALK patients that alectinib has some pretty "noteworthy" side effects. I will reach out to them and encourage them to respond to your post.

With gratitude,
