FAMILIAL ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS
Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a rare, inherited condition that causes extra tissue (polyps) to form in your large intestine (colon) and rectum. Colonic or large bowel polyps are the most common, increasing in frequency with age. Colonic polyps are mostly seen in numbers of more than ten after the age of 60.
HOW IS FAMILIAL ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS DIAGNOSED?
The diagnosis for Familial Adenomatous Polyposis basically involves detecting the polyps and Colonoscopy is the accepted method of diagnosis of the disease. If there is known family history then genetic testing can be advised by the specialist. This is a condition to be referred to the Gastroenterology section in a clinic or hospital and that is where the appropriate treatment can be received.
HOW IS FAMILIAL ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS TREATED?
As far as the treatment for Familial Adenomatous Polyposis is concerned, prophylactic surgery is what is resorted to if the General Physician manages to detect the condition early (before the age of 25). In extreme cases the surgeon may advise removing the colon and the rectum and this could be very uncomfortable for the patient for passing stool.
