    Of course it is meant for the younger generation. Knowing a certain type of cancer runs in the family will be detected early before mutating to stage 4.

    From your experience doctors speculate. I don't know what that doctor thinks when you talk to him 9 years later.

    I hope ("illegal cancer screening") will one day produce the relevant results to help cancer patients detect cancer early on before mutating.

    I rest my case.

    The diagnosing Dr was not the only one with that opinion. My oncologist and radiation oncologist were of the same opinion only they did not voice it to me until a year after I finished treatment.

    You're welcome. I think that's the power of these boards that we can have a discussion and folks can share their point of view and at least you can make an informed decision on whether it's worth the risk of participating. In my opinion, there's probably a way that this would be legal, but it would depend, most likely, on what's happening with the billing/coding, diagnosis, etc., which is outside of your control. For every one way there is to do it legally, there's probably 100 ways to do it wrong (especially where the compensation seems excessive) and the Anti-Kickback Statues, False Claims Act and Stark Law are quite powerful tools of the Department of Justice.

    I have an aunt who died relatively young of a brain tumor. Suppose I took one of these tests and it showed I had a genetic weakness that might, or might not, cause a brain cancer. What would I do differently in my life?

    You would get a brain transplant, of course!

    Now THAT was a good laugh. It has deferred any cancer manifestations for at least a week!

    I read the links you sent me. I'm not a lawyer by any means. But, when the words felony, criminal and conspiracy occurred frequently - I did send them to my lawyer.

    Just to gray of an area for short term gain. All I kept seeing in my head was my future cell mate - the former Governor of Illinois - Blagojevich . . .

    I glad you decided to listen to somebody even if they did tell you the same as most other people were telling you.
