Patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's colitis are at increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). This risk is dependent on the duration and extent of disease, inflammatory activity and possible additional risk factors. Thus, the aim is to reduce this risk and to detect dysplastic and malignant lesions at an early stage. The working group for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) of the Austrian Society of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (ÖGGH) has developed consensus statements on the following topics: risk of colorectal cancer, screening and surveillance, procedure of surveillance colonoscopy, dysplasia and its management, and chemoprevention. This consensus is intended to increase awareness of the increased risk of CRC in IBD and to support a standardised approach in cancer prevention.
