How might familial cylindromatosis be treated treated?

Treatment of familial cylindromatosis depends on the number, size, and location of tumors.  Single cylindromas may be treated with surgery, cryotherapy, or laser therapy.[1]  Multiple cylindromas may require multiple surgeries to remove all the tumors.  In the most serious cases, significant reconstructive surgery may be the only treatment option.[1]

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to cure or prevent familial cylindromatosis.
