Cowden Syndrome

Re: Cowden Syndrome

Well I've now been told I don't have BRCA 1 or 2 but meeting genetics consultant in a month to discuss next tests and Cowden definitely being revisited, as I meet almost all of the diagnostic criteria, especially with the 2 primaries I had and my family history ... watch this space!

Re: Cowden Syndrome

Thanks Flames. I've been told I don't have the rogue PTEN gene thank goodness. However, they are now testing for BRCA 1 and 2. If they're negative will possibly look at Lynch. Feeling very supported, it's just a long waiting game! X

Re: Cowden Syndrome

Cowden's syndrome is definitely to watch because is has a risk to developing cancer particularly breast cancer. You should set an appointment with your and start a treatment. I hope this might help, Good Luck!

Re: Cowden Syndrome

Thanks Helena. It's definitely Cowden syndrome they are looking for and not Lynch Syndrome. I did a site search for Cowden but it looks as if no one else has mentioned it on here. Xx

on the I am recently diagnosed section, diagnosed with breast cancer there is a thread from a lady who has lynch syndrome and bc, it is about half way down on the page - lynch syndrome and diagnosed with breast cancer,  I think is the title xxx

Re: Cowden Syndrome

Bonita. Thank you for your reply. I think it's quite rare but it maybe something women who have had both endometrial and breast cancer may need to be aware of. I shall follow your suggestion.

Cowden Syndrome

Hello. I'm just back from my genetic counselling appointment. I'm going to be discussed at the team meeting tomorrow but it looks like they will put me through for testing for lynch syndrome or more likely Crowden. I just wondered if anyone else has had either syndrome diagnosed or knows more about it? Thank you x
