A good friend of mine has been diagnosed with crohn’s disease. I have read something on the internet about this disease. I hear that it is an inflammatory bowel disease. It has a serious prognosis. The thing that worries me is if it can lead to cancer or not. I would like to have certain info on this. Can anyone help?

Crohn’s disease is a serious disease. It is an inflammatory disease of the bowel. It can lead to cancer. However, only 10 % of people with Crohn’s develop cancer. Others are safe. It depends on several factors. If one has Crohn’s for more than 9 years, there is a greater chance for developing cancer. The area that is affected with disease is also important. The greater area affected with Crohn’s is, the greater the chance for cancer is. I hope your friend will be all right.
