Genetic testing will indicate whether or not you will develop familial adenomatous polyposis(FAP). If you do not wish to undergo genetic testing or have learned through testing that you have the mutation, then yearly colorectal cancer screening is necessary.
The two screening examinations for colorectal cancer and FAP are sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy.
