Back to the nypdigestive.org Home Page

Inflammatory bowel disease is associated with an increased lifetime risk for colorectal cancer.

Over time, the inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract can lead to abnormal changes in the cells called dysplasia, which are a warning sign of cancer.

While the majority of patients with IBD will never develop colorectal cancer, it is important to attend your regular checkups so that your doctor can screen for cancer.
