Increased Risk Of Colon Cancer ?
Posted 02 March 2004 - 08:59 PM
My husband also had the familial polyposis gene (colon cancer) and has a very strong family history of colon cancer and deaths from it. My husband has polyps that he has regular colonoscopies for. My son with most of his intestines gone has all the markers for having the colon cancer gene also .
He was only recently diagnosed (9 months ago) and is 7-1/2 yrs old. He obviously had been exposed to a lot of gluten, and it concerns me what increased risk he may be at for developing colon cancer. He has already had a colonoscopy, with no polyps found, yet and hopefully never will be found.
Any info/studies would be appreciated. I am also praying that the risk diminished, or is even negated once the patient is gluten free.
