My husband's surgeon has been recommending that he do the genetic testing. I asked him if it comes back negative does that mean our kids will not need to be tested early and he said no that they should still be tested 10 yrs before their dad's diagnosis. I can't help wondering why bother with this - just another expense. Have most gone through this genetic testing? What is the advantage?
Also, we have never been told anything about my husband's tumor and not sure we want to know. I keep reading stories about kras, signet cells, etc. - is it a bad idea to assume that the doctors would have given us any of this info if we needed to know or do we need to ask for him to be tested for these different types?
