Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a rule on the frequency of ultrasound scans for fibromas/cysts?

There is at present no protocol for regular screening for ovarian fibromas/cysts. If the patient requested screening it would be advised that healthcare professionals with experience of Gorlin Syndrome did it.
