Posted by alan bruce @alanbruce, Tue, Oct 8 6:38pm

A family member just found out they have Lynch Syndrome and I am looking for information about this Lynch including Dianosis and Treatment at Mayo

Hello @alanbruce and welcome to Mayo Connect. It is very thoughtful of you to look for information for your family member recently diagnosed with Lynch Syndrome. We have other members who have discussed this disorder. Here is a link to those posts, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/lynch-syndrome-27c1fe/. You can read those posts and then ask questions of those members.

Here is some information from Mayo's website about Lynch Syndrome, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/lynch-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20374714

If you don't mind sharing more, how old is this family member? How was Lynch Syndrome diagnosed? Are there any other family members with this disorder?
