Methods: Stakeholders from Europe and North America worked together over a two-day workshop to achieve consensus on best practice.
Results: Guidance was developed in four key areas: 1) whether women with gynecological cancer should be screened for Lynch syndrome and 2) how this should be done; 3) whether there was a role for gynecological surveillance in women with proven Lynch syndrome; and 4) what preventive measures should be recommended for women with Lynch syndrome to reduce their risk of gynecological cancer.
Conclusion: This document provides comprehensive clinical guidance that can be referenced by both patients and clinicians so that women with Lynch syndrome can expect and receive appropriate standards of care.
