About tuberous sclerosis complex
Each month 10 babies are born in the UK with TSC
An estimated 1 million people have TSC. Some will be diagnosed with TSC very early in life, whilst others may not be diagnosed until later childhood, Adolescents or adult hood.
What is TSC? TSC is a genetic condition that can lead to growths in various organs of the body, but those most commonly affected are the brain, eyes, heart, kidney, skin and lungs. These growths may also be referred to as tumours but they're not cancerous. When they cause problems it is mainly because of their size and where they are in the body. TSC growths have different names depending on which organ they are found in.
The impact of TES varies considerably, with some people being relatively mildly affected and others being more significantly affected. This impact maybe evident in the early years or not until adulthood. Thanks to research findings and with improved medical care, people with TSC can expect their lives to be healthier and with normal life expectancy in most cases. Your donations really do make a huge difference.
