If you or a loved one was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, did you have biomarker testing?

I checked No for biomarker because I never heard that word before and am quite ceratin I never had it prior to treatmant. However AFTER my operation etc I had GENETIC testing to see if I had the gene to pass it on. Not sure if this is the same thing.

Thanks for taking the poll! Biomarker testing is sometimes refered to as molecular or genetic testing.

I had not heard of the term biomarker testing before however yes I did have genetic tests

No nothing was ever discussed about biomarker testing, but I have had genetic testing for melanoma which I’ve had and now I have passed on the gene to my daughter

Do you know which genetic marker you have?
