I saw an article on this recently. Scary.

These risks are there for adults as well though aren't they? Or is that they just saw a rise in these cancers with children/young adults right now? I already have lymphoma in my family, so for me these treatments are going to be something I'm going to hesitate in wanting to try.
Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Currently taking Prednisone: tapered to 15 mg *eek*, Asacol, Questran, Toprol XL (for high blood pressure).
