If you have inflammatory bowel disease, you may be worried about colon cancer.
Inflammatory bowel disease, which includes Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, is an umbrella term used to describe disorders that involve chronic inflammation of your digestive tract. It's important to understand that while inflammatory bowel disease increases your risk of colon cancer, it doesn't necessarily lead to colon cancer.
Your health care provider will consider how long you've had inflammatory bowel disease when making recommendations about how often you need colon cancer screening and which screening tests are best for you.
