Re: Possibility of Colon Cancer from Crohn's?

Hi..when's the last time you had a colonoscopy? It's good to have them regularly....at least every 3 years if all biopsies are clear of dysplasia or that one has no polyps.

Since you have a family history, you would be best to get an appointment with your GI and discuss your latest symptoms. They may be just CD related, but you should at the very least line up a c-scope to ease your worries about any cellular changes. Make sure your GI KNOWS about your family history with colon cancer.

What meds are you using for CD? and why is it that you're not using them?

Hang tough...your symptoms may be CD related, hemorrhoid or fissure related....but you should be checked out regardless.
