Consensus guidelines for clinical management and directions for future use

Following the publications of these guidelines it was recommended that enhanced breast screening should be strongly considered as there is increasing evidence of lobular breast cancer for females who carry the CDH1 gene. From the age of 35 as well as monthly breast self examinations, annual mammogram and breast MRI and a biannual clinical breast examination is recommended. The document also includes screening guidelines for CDH1 families in which colon cancer is reported.
