Tumors of colon and various polyposis syndrome mnemonic

Peutz Jegher's Syndrome mnemonic:
Remember the initial letters of the disease - PJS.
P: Pigmented oral mucosa
J: Jejunal polyps
S: STK 11 defect


Gardner's syndrome mnemonic:
I think gardens are full of pots with flowers. That's your memory aid right there. Daisy POTS.
Desmoid tumor of abdomen
Polyps
Osteomas
Thyroid cancer / tooth abnormalities
Sebaceous cysts

Turcot's syndrome mnemonic:
I think of turban, the head wear; which reminds me of the brains tumors associated with turcot's syndrome.

Hereditary Non polyposis Colorectal Cancer mnemonic:
I have a weird association for this. I think of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. It should be CS, not CC. There is a mismatch in alphabets. HNPCC is due to DNA mismatch repair defect.

That's all!

Specially wrote this post for Anonymous. I covered all the important ones! Hope this helps you sweetie and lemme know if you need help with any other syndrome not covered by me.
