Abstract

People with the genetic Lynch syndrome are more likely to get cancer but we cannot accurately predict who will get cancer and when. Doctors need this information to improve cancer prevention. Large collaborative studies are needed for this research. We have agreement from the 115 researchers to combine, into a single resource, 8,863 family trees of Lynch syndrome. We will analyse this data to determine the risk of cancer and whether it differs by sex, age, or nationality.
