The Polyposis Registry at St Mark’s Hospital represents possibly the longest running research project in the world.

The Inherited Intestinal Cancer Syndromes are more commonly known as “polyposis” and/or “Lynch Syndrome”.

The polyposis syndromes include:

Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP)

Peutz Jeghers Syndrome (PJS)

Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome (JPS)

MYH Associated Polyposis (MAP)

Serrated Polyposis Syndrome (SPS)

The hospital department caring for these families is the Polyposis Registry. The Lynch Syndrome Families are cared for by the Family Cancer Clinic. The Family Cancer Clinic is funded by the NHS and the Imperial Cancer Research UK Centre, and is based at St Mark’s Hospital. The clinic offers advice to people who have a family history of colorectal or associated cancers, and provides screening, clinical follow-up and counselling.
