Hello @Dandylu‍ thank you for opening this discussion. Let me tag some other members who can possible share with you!

For those of you who may not be familiar, Lynch syndrome, also known as hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC), is the most common cause of hereditary colorectal cancer. It also raises a person's likelihood of developing endometrial, stomach, liver, kidney, brain, and certain types of skin cancers.

Do any of you have hereditary cancer like Lynch syndrome? How did you find out? How do you cope with it?
