a lynch syndrome hereditary cancer advocacy organization
Lynch syndrome is a genetic condition that increases a person's risk for certain cancers. It is the most common inherited cause of colorectal and endometrial cancers. Many individuals with a Lynch mutation develop related cancers at very early ages, much younger than the general population. Screening should begin earlier for patients with a known Lynch mutation.
