From all I've read on this subject IBS lead into UC. I have had IBS for 20 some yrs. & now have UC. I read in an article on UC that when you start out with IBS & then go into UC after having UC for 8 to 10 yrs. you can develop colon cancer. This scares the H---out of me. Has anyone else read about
this or heard anything? I have suffered it seems all my life with intestinal problems & hate to think that I will have to deal with colon cancer in another 10 yrs. Why do some people always have everything wrong with them & other people are pretty healthy? Heredity & genes? Or is our environment?
