Mayo Clinic researchers are continually developing improved screening methods and treatments for hereditary polyp disorders and colorectal cancer. Mayo maintains a Colon Cancer Family Registry to help keep you informed of new screening techniques and procedures. Mayo scientists also are working to discover more about the genetic basis of FAP and other hereditary polyp disorders.
See a list of publications by Mayo authors on familial adenomatous polyposis on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
