The FAP Gene Support Group

(Familial Adenomatous Polyposis)

FAP is an inherited condition which mainly affects the large intestine (also known as the large bowel or colon and rectum). People with FAP develop many polyps (which are like small cherries on stalks) inside their large bowel. There are many different types of polyps but these particular polyps are called adenomas (the "adenomatous" in FAP). An adenoma can in time turn into a cancer which is why it is so important to make sure anyone at risk of inheriting FAP is examined.

FAP is a serious condition unless detected early when it can be treated.

This site does not offer any medical advice. For this you should contact your consultant or GP. Also no details of contacts or E:mail addresses will be made available to any third party.

The FAP Gene Support Group is run totally by volunteers.
