Women with IBD may face higher cervical cancer risk

April 1, 2015

A diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease in women was found to be associated with increased risk for cervical neoplasia in a population-based nationwide cohort study.

“Our research shows that patients with IBD, specifically Crohn’s disease, are at increased risk for developing cervical cancer, even when undergoing the recommended screening,” Tine Jess, MD, from Statens Serum Institut in Denmark, said in a press release. “These findings provide an important reminder for IBD patients, and their physicians, to follow the recommended screening guidelines for cervical cancer.”
