Joanna’s diagnosis of attenuated Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (AFAP), and the implications for her family.
A diagnosis of attenuated familial adenomatous polyposis (AFAP), an inherited form of bowel cancer, was eventually made in Joanna’s family after she was found to have multiple polyps and subsequently searched for information herself and requested specialist help. As well as having to come to terms with the implications for her own health, her story reflects her motivation to obtain a definitive diagnosis and to ensure her family were also aware of the implications to their health.
