Abstract

Epidemiological studies have convincingly shown that chronic inflammation predisposes to cancer. Examples of chronic inflammation leading to cancer formation include:

  1. Chronic H pylori gastritis leading to gastric cancer,
  2. Chronic pancreatitis leading to pancreatic cancer and
  3. Longstanding inflammatory bowel disease associated colitis leading to colon cancer.
