Has anyone seen this.....if it wasn't so expensive I'd be interested to do this test just out of curiosity as to what it would say. Blood test about $800.00.

I'd rather go to a place that specializes in the testing instead of mail order. Besides, I know I have cancer.
I guess there is that element of seeing if it says I don't have cancer or I'm not pregnant (or maybe I am!)

If you find out for certain you are pregnant, please let us know here before it hits the tabloids! lol

I agree about testing...not a fan of mail order meds or testing.

Not mail order, has to be ordered by physician, and they have places they can send you specifically for the blood work.....Phil you're funny. I remember way back when I was first in hospital waiting for surgery I was looking on line, even though I was given specific instruction from my doctor to "not go on line searching". Anyhow I think while in there I would read posts...and I seem to remember buckwirth making some comment about going for a mammogram and some other tests and got totally confused.

it only assesses risk of CRC which would supposedly lead one to doing a colonoscopy

A non-invasive,stool DNA test is under study now
