Question: does anyone know if the polyps in Gardner syndrome are usually deeper in the intestine and not near the colon? A friend has cysts forming on his body that are forming at slightly rapid rate, and I have looked up these cysts could be caused by this disease. He has other problems, and I think it's something more serious than just random cysts and red lesions. side note: checked for HIV, it was negative.

Answer: The polyps from Gardner syndrome can occur anyplace in the intestine (small and large intestine) They have even occurred in the stomach. This disease is hereditary and the patients suffering from this need to be closely monitored
