Have you been tested for Gardner's Syndrome?

Gardner's Syndrome is considered to be rare. However the main symptoms sound somewhat like Crohn's or colitis. Some of the symptoms are multiple colon polyps, chronic and/or frequent diarrhea (often bloody), intestinal blockages, cysts, fibroid or fatty tumors anywhere in or on the body and, if the colon is not removed, colon cancer. I am curious to know if anyone here has been told about this disease or tested for it.

Those with Gardner's have a 100% risk of developing colon cancer if their colon is not removed . More information on Gardner's Syndrome can be found here:
