Abstract

Patients with longstanding and extensive ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease of the colon have an increased risk of developing colorectal cancer (CRC). A meta-analysis published in 2001 including 116 studies from around the world reported the risk of CRC in patients with UC as 2% after 10 years, 8% after 20 years, and 18% after 30 years of disease.1 Data from a 30-year prospective surveillance program in the UK published in 2004 reported a lower risk of CRC in patients with UC of 2.5% at 20 years, 7.6% at 30 years, and 10.8% at 40 years.2 While this suggests that the risk of developing CRC is lower than previously thought, CRC is still a significant concern for patients with UC.
