Turcot Syndrome

What are the screening options for Turcot syndrome?

The screening options for Turcot syndrome are considered to be similar to those for Lynch syndrome or FAP, with the addition of screening for brain cancer. See those conditions' sections for a summary of screening recommendations.

There are no specific guidelines for the frequency and method of screening for brain cancer. Individuals from families diagnosed with Turcot syndrome are encouraged to talk with a neurologist (a doctor who specializes in problems with the brain and central nervous system) about screening options.

Screening options may change over time as new technologies are developed and more is learned about Turcot syndrome. It is important to talk with your doctor about appropriate screening tests.
