Cancer: Colon Message Board


Cancer: Colon Board Index


Hi,

Our daughter was 17 when she was diagnosed with "Familial Adenomatous Polyposis"...hundreds of adenomas (pre-cancerous polyps) throughout her colon.

She had her entire colon and rectum removed when she was 18 to avoid having colon cancer, as 100% of the time it will result in colon cancer.

She had many of the classic symptoms of Colon Cancer and it took a lot of persistance to have the doctors take us seriously at first because she was so young and there was no family history.

Glad you're getting it checked out! She's 21 now, and doing well!

Joanne
