Can you develop Colin Cancer from Diverticulitis or IBS?!
Diverticula are believed to be caused by overly forceful contractions of the muscular wall of the large intestine. As areas of this wall spasm, they become weaker and weaker, allowing the inner lining to bulge through. The anatomically weakest areas of the intestinal wall occur next to the blood vessels that course through the wall, so diverticula commonly occur in these locations.
Possibility:- the colon cancer can develop from Diverticulitis coli.
I have had Crohn's disease for 12 yrs. and it can turn into cancer if you don't take your meds. and do as the Dr. says.Good luck to you my prayers are with you.
