Lynch syndrome is a genetic disease that most people have never heard about, yet 1 in 279 people or almost 1.2 million people in the United States have it. Unfortunately, 95% of these people do not know they have it. Lynch syndrome affects our cells’ mismatch
repair mechanism or “spell checking method” that makes sure that a perfect copy of our DNA is made when a cell replicates (copies itself). When a mistake is made in the cell replication process, it can lead to cancer. Lynch syndrome should always be considered
when a person has a cancer below the age of 50. The two most common cancers caused by Lynch Syndrome are colon and uterine (womb) cancer. But Lynch syndrome can also cause other cancers throughout the body. Our efforts are focused on educating individuals and health care providers about Lynch syndrome. Through education we can increase the awareness of Lynch syndrome, identify affected individuals, and then diagnose cancers at their earliest possible stage. This program can significantly improve the life and longevity of affected individuals.
