What is Familial Adenomatous Polyposis?

Welcome to the world of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis. Much like navigating a foreign land, getting acquainted with FAP can feel utterly overwhelming. Though it can also lead to some interesting stories and adventures. For that reason, we compiled a FAP welcome kit for newly diagnosed FAP’ers. Think of this like that Lonely Planet Travel Guide: a good start to help provide some initial direction for your journey and save you from aimless Google searches. Along the way of course, you’ll supplement this with your own advice gleaned from talking to others on the same course and hidden gems you’ve discovered.
