Did you know that long-term and chronic IBD conditions such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis can cause colorectal cancer? Inflammatory bowel disease conditions for a decade or long can increase the risk of colon cancer. This is the key reason why clinicians mandatorily recommend periodic and comprehensive monitoring of the disease activity as well as the severity of gastrointestinal inflammation. The risk is directly related to the timespan of active disease condition and gastrointestinal inflammation. However, equally important is the severity of the symptoms and the affected area of the body. At the outset, every condition of IBD doesn’t lead to colorectal cancer. For example, Crohn’s disease conditions that affect the lower part of the large intestine leave a higher amount of colon cancer risks. Hence, more frequent and intense diagnosis methods are recommended to diagnose the illnesses without delay. Colon cancer tests that are commonly recommended include colonoscopy, virtual colonoscopy or CT colonography, fecal occult blood test and flexible sigmoidoscopy. That said, none of the aforesaid tests can be recommended as the best and common for all. The best diagnosis and screening test can vary with the disease condition and the affected area of the body. Colonoscopy tests are conducted with a long and slender tube with a camera attached towards the end. This test helps examine the diseases areas of both colon and rectum. As the diseased areas get diagnosed, tissue samples are connected for the biopsy analysis which helps get more comprehensive idea about the IBD condition, and the possible risks of colon cancer. Broadly speaking, colon cancer screening for those without IBD conditions is often recommended yearly, after the age of fifty. But, when it comes to recommending colon cancer screening tests for those who battle with IBD, age is never a criterion, as most of them have to undergo periodic tests to avoid the risks of the fatal colon cancer.
