What CRC-linked genes mean

"The two most common inherited colorectal cancer syndromes are hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer and familial adenomatous polyposis. They can affect either sex, and the children of people who carry these genes have a 50% chance of inheriting the disease-causing gene. These two inherited cancer syndromes account for about 5% of all colorectal cancers." -- WebMD
