Long-term inflammation of the digestive tract can increase the risk of colon cancer and other bowel diseases, making it very important for people with IBD to have regular screening of the colon.

IBD inflammation may also affect other parts of the body like the joints, eyes, skin and liver. Inflammation in other parts of the body is usually most apparent during a flare-up and reduces or disappears during times of remission. If you have noticed inflammation in your body ask your doctor about treatment options.
