Your GP is likely to know very little about FAP. Some GPs go through a career and never come across an FAP patient. Bear in mind there are less than 6,000 patients in the UK. The population is around 60,000,000.
At PolyPeople we think that in someways we the people have to be the educators and we have the ability to direct the GPs to the right sources of information. Also GPs might not have the latest information. The Polyposis Register at St Marks Hospital does have the latest information. They are there for us and you, so please get in touch if you need any further help!
