- Recommendation ID
- Natural history of progression to colorectal cancer in people at increased risk:- What is the natural history of progression to colorectal cancer in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or adenomas?
- Any explanatory notes
- Why this is important:- There is very limited evidence on the natural history of progression to colorectal cancer, and how factors such as extent of disease, grade of dysplasia and adenoma-related factors affect progression. Long-term studies (ideally with a follow-up of 20 years or longer) should be conducted to determine the natural history of colorectal cancer in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or adenomas.
