    Yes she is correct.
    Polyposis syndrome is a syndrome characterized by the appearance of multiple polyps in the gastrointestinal tract, usually in a child, adolescent or young adult.[1] Polyps refers to a growth arising from the lumen of the colon or stomach. While the majority of the polyps found in Juvenile Polyposis Syndrome are non-neoplastic, hamartomatous, self-limiting and benign, there is an increased risk of adenocarcinoma.
    Check the age of the patient...
