I never knew the little things were all leading up to me having FAP. Perhaps if I had a colonoscopy 10 years ago I would have been able to have the IRA or save my rectum or hell even took the meds that slow polyp growth down. So these are things I had as a kid and now as an adult (eye thing is new). So if your children have any of this, get them tested, it is very common to not get FAP from a parent, like me. I am the first in the family.
As a kid I had extra teeth grow in, I had 2 extra canines grow in, overlapping my teeth, stuck out like vampire fangs lol. When the bottom teeth were pulled by a dentist who suggested it before giving me braces the top ones fell down in place. Extra teeth is a sign of FAP.
On my tailbone area around age 6 my mom says, I say 12 i noticed it I had a very large Lipoma form, that was later removed by liposuction. That is related to FAP.
That last eye exam I had for glasses I wear for computer use due to a small astigmatism. When they dilated my eyes for a retina check I was told I had scar tissue behind my retina. “Scar tissue I thought? Never heard that before or maybe nobody saw it”. Anyway, I was told maybe due to an infection. Ugh… fire anyone that says that! Usually they see freckles behind the retina, that is congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium CHRPE.
I formed a desmoid tumor after I had a tumy tuck revision in May of 2011 that formed. Weird I thought, WTF is a Desmoid tumor. Benign tissue basically. We tend to form these cyst like tumors in places we have been cut. So if you ever had one grow, chances are you have FAP.
Get a colonoscopy to determine if you have Familial Adenomatous Polyposis. They do them as early as 3 these days.
