Hereditary Mixed Polyposis Syndrome

What are the screening options for HMPS?

There are no specific screening guidelines developed for HMPS. Regular screening colonoscopies are appropriate. Many doctors would suggest beginning screening five to 10 years earlier than the youngest age at which polyps were identified in a family member. If polyps are found, screening may need to be done as often as once a year. 

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