The postulated gene is associated with risk at early ages of bowel cancer, but is not associated with the other features of HNPCC, suggesting a class of genes different from those thought to be involved in the Lynch syndromes. Mentioned in the discussion was the fact that the Melbourne study has a bias towards left-sided colorectal cancer. Only a sma" minority of families in this study showed second-degree relatives with colorectal cancer in the absence of first-degree relatives with the disease.

Finally, the issue of heterogeneity must be addressed. Are there differences between HNPCC families in the risk for endometrial, urological, or other extracolonic cancers? If so, these differences might reflect a fundamental difference in the underlying inherited disorder. One sort of heterogeneity has been hypothesised: Lynch syndrome I vs. Lynch syndrome II, as described above. It is also possible that other special subtypes could be identified, based on the family history of cancer at specific organ sites occurring in 41 conjunction with colorectal cancer.
