This free case-based activity includes a crowd-sourced discussion of a 51-year-old female patient that had a colonoscopy that revealed a large non-obstructing mass in the ascending colon. A biopsy confirmed invasive adenocarcinoma and elevated CEA at 35ng/ML. No evidence of active bleeding and labs confirmed normal liver, kidney, and marrow function. Her pathologic and genomic profiling results are discussed, along with the significance of the findings for her family in relation to hereditary colorectal cancer.
