Mayo Clinic researchers are continually developing improved screening methods and treatments for hereditary polyp disorders, such as FAP, and colorectal cancer. Mayo maintains a Colon Cancer Family Registry to help keep you informed of new screening techniques and procedures. Mayo scientists are working to discover more about the genetic basis of FAP and other hereditary polyp disorders and to clinically translate those genetic findings to medical care. Surgeons also are working to improve treatments, such as laparoscopic techniques for colorectal procedures.
