Blue Ribbon Panel Recommendations (pg 42...) re: Lynch Syndrome (missed opportunity)



pdf

In response, the Blue Ribbon Panel recommendations call for a nationwide
demonstration project to systematically screen all people diagnosed with colorectal and endometrial cancer for Lynch syndrome. This demonstration project could be carried out via NCI’s established research network, including NCI-designated Cancer Centers, hospitals that are part of the NCI’s National Community Oncology Research Program, and other centers.

  1. Cumulatively PRESENTING cancers are not necessarily colon/endometrial & represent a significant % of LS patients. eg. UTUC according to some stats is the 3rd most common cancer in LS. Good steps but missed opportunities??
