Familial Adenomatous Polyposis in Children

Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a condition in which polyps (abnormal growths) form in the digestive tract. FAP is an inherited disease, meaning it is passed down in the family.

Children with FAP develop hundreds to thousands of polyps throughout their colon at a young age, usually as a teenager or young adult. The polyps may become cancerous if untreated. However, FAP is very treatable and most kids with FAP lead normal, healthy lives.

Learn more about FAP, including symptoms, how it's diagnosed and what treatments are available.
