Familial adenomatous polyposis

Is genetic testing available for familial adenomatous polyposis?

Genetic testing is available for the gene known to cause familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). Prenatal testing and genetic testing for at-risk relatives are possible if the disease-causing mutation in the family is known. Because colon screening for those at risk for classic FAP begins as early as age ten years, genetic testing is generally offered to children by this age. Testing may be offered earlier if the child is showing signs or symptoms of FAP.

The Genetic Testing Registry (GTR) is a centralized online resource for information about genetic tests. The intended audience for the GTR is health care providers and researchers. Patients and consumers with specific questions about a genetic test should contact a health care provider or a genetics professional.
