Background: An increased risk of left‐sided colon cancer in patients with diverticular disease of the sigmoid colon has been reported. The aim of this study was to investigate to what extent patients with diverticulitis of the sigmoid colon differ in long‐term risk of colon cancer compared to patients with diverticulosis of the colon without any clinical signs of diverticulitis. Methods: A total of 7159 patients (2478 M, 4681 F) discharged with a diagnosis of diverticulosis or diverticulitis in… Expand
An 18-Year Nationwide Cohort Study on The Association Between Diverticulitis and Colon Cancer
TLDR
A population-based cohort study based on longitudinal Danish national registers with data from the period 1995 to 2012 found a strong association between development of diverticulitis and colon cancer. Expand
High Probability of an Underlying Colorectal Cancer Among Patients Treated for Acute Diverticulitis. A Population-Based Cohort Follow-Up Study
TLDR
Patients conservatively treated for AD are at high risk for an underlying Colorectal cancer, especially if older than 70 years, which motivates routine follow-up, and a CT diagnosis of uncomplicated AD does not rule out CRC. Expand
Tumour Characteristics of Patients with Colorectal Cancer after Acute Uncomplicated Diverticulitis
TLDR
This study strongly suggests that even though CRC is rare after uncomplicated diverticulitis, in cases of alarm symptoms, a colonoscopy is indicated. Expand
Diverticular disease and colon cancer: a real association between the two diseases?
TLDR
The role played by DD would lead to an early diagnosis of colonic ADK and the possible etiopathogenetic correlation over time between the two clinical entities remains to be analyzed however. Expand
Post-Diverticulitis Colonoscopy Was Not Associated with Higher Colonic Adenoma and Carcinoma: A Multicenter Case–Control Study
TLDR
Decision to perform colonoscopy after acute diverticulitis should be individualized based on risk stratification of colonic neoplasia. Expand
Diverticulitis: a new high‐risk group for colorectal cancer?

TLDR
The hypothesis that there is an association between inflammation and cancer is supported by previous findings of intracellular Escherichia coli in the colonocytes in most patients with colorectal cancer and plasma CRP concentrations have been found elevated in persons who subsequently develop colonic cancer, supporting the view that inflammation is a risk factor. Expand
Association between colorectal cancer and colonic diverticulosis: case–control study based on computed tomographic colonography
TLDR
This study indicates that CRC is not associated with diverticulosis and asymptomatic age and gender matched controls were analyzed retrospectively. Expand
Diverticular Disease and Colorectal Neoplasms: Association between Left Sided Diverticular Disease with Colorectal Cancers and Right Sided with Colonic Polyps.
TLDR
It was showed that the prevalence of DD, CRC and polyps increases with age and there were significant associations between presence of left-sided DD with CRC and right-sided or pan-DD with colonic polyps, which suggests shared risk factors. Expand
The risk of colorectal cancer after an attack of uncomplicated diverticulitis
TLDR
Among patients experiencing an attack of uncomplicated diverticulitis the frequency of CRC was equal to what might be expected compared to the average risk in the population, and in these patients a routine colonoscopy in the absence of other clinical signs of CRC seems hardly necessary. Expand

Increased risk of left sided colon cancer in patients with diverticular disease.
TLDR
The hypothesis that patients with diverticulosis are at increased risk of developing colon cancer was tested in a retrospective, population based, cohort study in Sweden and results do not support the hypothesis of a common aetiology in diverticular disease and colonic cancer but suggest a causal relationship between diverticular Disease and cancer of the left colon. Expand
Cancers among patients diagnosed as having diverticular disease of the colon.
TLDR
Malignant diseases, especially colorectal cancer, are relatively common among patients with a clinical diagnosis of Diverticulosis or diverticulitis of the colon, which may indicate a need for a change in current clinical practice. Expand
Usefulness of colonic motility study in identifying patients at risk for complicated diverticular disease
TLDR
The observations suggest that patients showing these indicators are at risk for major complication, and patients showing asymptomatic diverticular disease and high intraluminal pressure are recommended. Expand
Cancer of the colon and rectum and adenomatous polyps: A review of epidemiologic findings
TLDR
The epidemiologic findings for intestinal cancer are reviewed and a model that may fit most of the facts is proposed for further testing and the need for comparative studies among populations subject to widely differing colon cancer risks is emphasized. Expand
Randomised study of screening for colorectal cancer with faecal-occult-blood test
TLDR
The findings indicate that biennial screening by FOB tests can reduce CRC mortality, and the effect of the removal of more precursor adenomas in the screening-group participants than in controls on CRC incidence. Expand
The changing epidemiology of diverticular disease in Israel
TLDR
In a retrospective evaluation of 1244 consecutive barium enemas performed at two hospitals over a five-year period, colonic diverticula were found in 177 and it is postulated that, in less than one generation, diverticular disease will be equally frequent among all ethnic groups in Israel. Expand
Screening reduces colorectal cancer rate in families with hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer.
TLDR
The 3-year interval screening more than halves the CRC rate in at-risk members of families with HNPCC and seems to prevent CRC deaths. Expand
Radiological investigation in acute diverticulitis
TLDR
Water‐soluble contrast enema is safe, widely available and probably the most useful early supplementary investigation in acute diverticulitis and magnetic resonance imaging has not been adequately evaluated. Expand
C-reactive protein and the risk of incident colorectal cancer.
TLDR
Plasma CRP concentrations are elevated among persons who subsequently develop colon cancer and support the hypothesis that inflammation is a risk factor for the development of colon cancer in average-risk individuals. Expand
Constipation and cathartics as risk factors of colorectal cancer: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
The analysis of 14 previously published case-control studies revealed statistically significant risks for colorectal cancer associated with both constipation and use of cathartics, the pooled odds ratios and their 95 percent confidence intervals being 1.32-1.66 and 1.46, respectively. Expand
