    Testing Positive for Lynch Syndrome

    Lynch Syndrome

    After experiencing uterine fibroids and testing positive for Lynch Syndrome, a mother of six contacted 2nd.MD to explore the option of a hysterectomy.  She did not want to live with this painful and possibly life-threatening condition.

    The 2nd.MD specialist promptly reviewed the mother’s medical and family history. The specialist noted that the guidelines for Lynch Syndrome state that a hysterectomy should be done after childbearing is completed due to the increased risk of cancer.

    Believing she received a sound second opinion from 2nd.MD,  Lynda had a hysterectomy and no longer worries about developing cancer.
