Familial adenomatous polyposis - FAP

Familial adenomatous polyposis - FAP #surgicalendoscopist #pietroschettino #endoscopy adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a genetic condition where affected individuals will develop hundreds to thousands of polyps (abnormal, mushroom-like growths) throughout their gastrointestinal (GI) tract beginning at a young age (usually as a teenager or young adult). These polyps are usually found in the large intestine (colon and rectum), but they can develop in the stomach and small intestine as well. The polyps that form in the large intestine are known as adenomas. Adenomas are considered to be precancerous. In addition, individuals with FAP may also develop other features outside of the gastrointestinal tract. Attenuated FAP (AFAP) is a milder form of FAP. People with AFAP also develop precancerous polyps throughout the GI tract; however, the polyps in the colon tend to be fewer in number, usually less than 100. Gastrointestinal Tract Since people with FAP or AFAP develop many precancerous polyps in the colon and rectum, they have an increased chance that one or more of the polyps may develop into cancer of the large intestine (also known as colon cancer, colorectal cancer, or rectal cancer). #MD #PHD #endoscopia #chirurgia #surgery #medicine #med #chirurgiaendoscopica #napoli #caserta #colonscopy #colon #picoftheday #videooftheday #videooninstagram #fedII #SUN
