Hi, I’m very new to all this so don’t really know where to start! I have a condition called Lynch Syndrome or HNPCC. My wonderful mother died 10 years ago at the age of 52 from Endometrial cancer. She previously had Bowel cancer too and at the time a link was not made but we now know she must have has Lynch syndrome too.
Researchers have suggested that women may be able to create some protection for themselves from gynaecological cancers by having their ovaries and uterus removed, if they have been diagnosed with nonpolyposis colorectal cancer or Lynch syndrome.
