What are the screening options for MAP?
There are no specific screening guidelines for MAP, but it has been suggested that screening for polyps and colorectal cancer in people with MAP should be similar to screening in people with FAP or AFAP.
It is important to discuss with your doctor the following screening options, as each individual is different:
Colonoscopy every two to three years, beginning at age 18
Colectomy (surgical removal of the colon) may be considered if polyps cannot be managed with regular colonoscopy
Screening options may change over time as new technologies are developed and more is learned about MAP. It is important to talk with your doctor about appropriate screening tests.
