Dear Martcan,

I am very sorry to hear that you have recently been diagnosed this bowel condition. We have a Factsheet with information on the bowel condition called Familial Adenomatous Polyposis(FAP).

Here is a link to download a PDF file of this factsheet which I hope you might find helpful: ... t_04_0.pdf

I am also attaching a link to the Polyposis support in the UK in addition to any support you may get on this message board:

We wish you the very best and you can phone a nurse here on our Helpline if you would like to discuss this further (Freefone 1800 200 700, Mon-Thurs 9-7, Friday 9-5)

Kind regards,
Cancer Information Nurse
