Answer

There is also a significant association between small bowel cancer and Crohn disease. However, the absolute risk is low. Future research may be helpful in clarifying incidence rates, duration and extent of disease, medication use, and other disease-modifying factors (eg, smoking) that may alter the risk stratification for small bowel cancer and Crohn disease.
