Colon Cancer Genetics

June 21, 2019

There are genetic relationships in regards to colon cancer and colon polyps. If a family member, especially a first degree relative, which means a brother, a sibling or parents have a history of colon cancer, or if they have a history of multiple polyps, your screening schedule gets altered according to the age at which they were diagnosed. You would have to do a colonoscopy 10 years before the diagnosis of your first degree relative.
