I have a colonoscopy scheduled for 8/20 and am a little scared, not of the procedure, but of what they might find. I was diagnosed with Crohn's at the beginning of this year, with an inflammation of the ileum. So far, in the past two years, I have had three bad flare-ups--one while I was visiting Mexico, one after eating a homemade beef stir-fry, and one after a midnight McDonalds run (the last time I ever had fast food). Does anyone know how often they find something (cancer) in someone with Crohn's? I'm 33, despite what my profile says. Do they often find cancer, etc., in someone with Crohn's my age? I am freaking out a little on the inside because my grandmother died of stomach cancer, and I have GERD, too. Bring on the information, support, etc. Thanks in advance.

I am not too bright either. At least not in...
