    Lynch Syndrome.... Have any of you seen this site?

    I am on a couple of forums and when I updated my information on Lynch Syndrome in the family, someone sent me a link to a very informative positive site. http://www.lynchcancers.com/

    Apparently aspirin will help us in the long run.... watch the video.... I have to ask about this!

      A very interesting study. I'm not sure if it has been replicated in the US o r elsewhere for that matter, but it certainly seems promising. Please be sure to check with your own doctor before starting any regimen of high dose aspirin. The study used a 600mg daily dose for 2 years and it would be contraindicated for folks with bleeding disorders, ulcers, kidney or liver disease. Increased use of colonoscopy is very important for you now that you have the additional genetic infiormation. Good Luck!
