I was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but there is a history of bowel cancer in my family. What should I look out for?
If your Crohn's disease involves your colon, you are also at increased risk for colon cancer based on the Crohn's disease. Careful follow up with your gastroenterologist is essential both to manage your Crohn's but also for cancer risk stratification and appropriate screening.
