Gynecological Manifestations in Lynch
Karen Lu, MD - University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Clinic
Lynch syndrome increases the lifetime risk of endometrial cancer to 25% - 60% and ovarian cancer to 4 - 12%. Approximately 30% of lynch syndrome related ovarian cancers are diagnosed before 40 years of age. An appropriate care plan not only includes proper surveillance, chemoprevention, and risk-reducing surgeries, but given the long term implications of oophorectomy and hysterectomy, also counseling the patient and providing follow-up care after prophylaxis.
This webinar will be a source of information for primary care physicians, surgeons, gastroenterologists, genetic counselors, and nurses, and will include education on the following topics:
Counseling the Patient
Follow up Care After Risk Reducing Surgeries, Including Hormonal Considerations
At the conclusion of this webinar series, medical professionals will be able to:
Develop immediate and long-term care plans for patients, specifically as they pertain to the gynecological manifestations of lynch syndrome.
Define current gynecological risk-reducing surgical options.
Select the best surgical option for their patients.
Develop post-surgical care plans for their patients.
