Inflammatory Bowel Disease and Colorectal Cancer
The longer the duration of ulcerative colitis and the wider the extent of inflammation, the more they become the major risk factors for colorectal cancer. In the case of anterior colitis that has invaded the right colon, the incidence of colorectal cancer increases from 8 to 10 years after the onset of symptoms, and in the case of left-sided colitis, it is reported that the incidence of colorectal cancer increases from 15 to 20 years later.
The incidence rate of Crohn's disease is lower than that of ulcerative colitis, but it is higher in the patients with the inflammatory bowel diseases, so it is important to have regular colonoscopy if you have an inflammatory bowel disease.
Diagnosis of inflammatory bowel diseases can be made by conducting clinical symptoms, endoscopy, histopathological findings, and blood test findings, or a combination of these. The most basic test is a colonoscopy. Colonoscopy is helpful in distinguishing from other bowel diseases, evaluating the lesion sites, evaluating response to treatment, complications, and early diagnosis of colorectal cancer that can occur together with the inflammatory bowel diseases.
Ulcerative Colitis
      1. It is literally an ulcer in the large intestine. Inflammation occurs only in the mucous membrane of the intestine and the patients mainly complain of bloody stool, diarrhea, and a feeling of urgent defecation. It is a condition in which the large intestine is continuously inflamed and torn and bleeds spontaneously. Therefore, more than 90% of patients have bloody stool symptoms.
Crohn's disease
      1. It is an inflammation of the entire digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. Unlike ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease is characterized by an inflammatory reaction that invades the entire intestinal wall, including the mucous membrane, submucosal layer, muscle layer, and serous layer of the colon. Symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, and weight loss appear and occur mainly in young people in their mid-teens to late twenties.
