Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is one of a group of diseases known as inflammatory bowel diseases. It is a chronic condition of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract – your esophagus, stomach, and gut. Over time Crohn’s can damage parts of the GI tract. Although it commonly affects the end of small intestine (ileum) and the beginning of the large intestine (colon), it may be found anywhere in the GI tract.

Your risk of getting Crohn's disease may be tied to your family or to your environment. Learn about the risks you may have for Crohn's disease by taking this assessment.

Note: A risk factor is anything that affects your chance of getting a disease. Having a risk factor, or even several risk factors, doesn’t mean that you will get the disease. And some people who get the disease may not have had any known risk factors.
