Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a colonic cancer syndrome which runs in families. It presents as mutliple adenomas in the colon which will become cancer of colon unless the colon is removed surgically.Though the cancer will present in the thirties, we have seen this presenting even at an age of 9 or 10.This runs in families caused by adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, located on chromosome 5q21.
