High Risk Registry

FOR ALL APPOINTMENTS, PLEASE CALL 314-454-7177, press 2

The Most Important Registry of your Life

The Washington University Inherited Colon Cancer Registry has expanded its efforts to enroll patients and family members with the inherited syndrome. The registry offers educational events, schedules regular screenings and makes it easier to collect research samples.

Lifesaving Surgery and Vigilant Screening

Patients with classic FAP can develop benign polyps as early as their teenage years. If the colon is not removed, these patients will inevitably develop colorectal cancer. For patients with HNPCC, vigilant screening is essential to avoid occurrence of aggressive colon cancer, endometrial cancer (in women) and other malignancies.
