About the Lynch Syndrome Center

Lynch syndrome is a common and often under-diagnosed inherited condition that increases one's risk for a variety of cancers, including colon, rectal, uterine, ovarian, urinary tract, and other malignancies. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Lynch Syndrome Center is the largest and most comprehensive multidisciplinary cancer genetics group in the region that specializes in coordinating the care of people with Lynch syndrome.

The Center's mission is to provide personalized and comprehensive care for families with Lynch syndrome, supported by world-class research and state-of-the-art diagnostics. As part of Dana-Farber's Center for Cancer Genetics and Prevention, our specialists help manage the comprehensive care of individuals and families with Lynch syndrome by providing genetic testing for individuals at risk for Lynch syndrome, creating personalized screening plans aimed at preventing Lynch syndrome-related cancers, and coordinating care with experts in surgery, gastroenterology, dermatology, and oncology.
