Would hemmoroids be mistaken as symptoms of FAP?

Would hemmoroids be mistaken as symptoms of FAP?

Well....: Both polyps and hemorrhoids can bleed and maybe over time result in anemia but I would think a trained endoscopist should be able to tell the difference between a polyp and a hemorrhoid, especially in classic FAP patients who have a virtual forest of hundreds or thousands of polyps. Moral of the story: rectal bleeding should be evaluated. ...Read more

Can you genes every change to suddenly get fap when you didn't have it before?

Can you genes every change to suddenly get fap when you didn't have it before?

No: The familial adenomatous polyposis (fap) gene (apc) exhibits dominant inheritance where affected individuals have one normal and one abnormal copy of the gene. A person can have fap due to a new apc gene mutation (without their parents having it) but this gene would be present at conception. ...Read more

Hi, anyone familar with fap/gardner syndrome? I know genetic testing would need to be done, i'm in san antonio tx (what do I do next?)

Familial polyposis: Genetic testing can be used to help diagnose fap. With genetic testing, a small blood sample is taken from the individual with fap and is sent to a special laboratory that studies the apc gene. About 80% of the time a change (also called an alteration or mutation) in the apc gene that leads to fap is found. Nice summary at: http://www2.Mdanderson.Org/app/pe/index.Cfm?Pagename=opendoc&docid=1032. ...Read more

Fap: FAP: it means that you have a disease that runs in the family, which makes you prone to making a lot of polyps at a young age. Some of those can turn into cancer in the future. All your polyps are probably due to FAP. You need regular colonoscopies to screen for new polyps. ...Read more
