Thank you for your question regarding your recent increase in symptoms. Ulcerative Colitis increases a person's risk of bowel cancer, but considering your increasing pain, it is very important for you to go back to your specialist for further follow up in order to understand what is causing your condition to worsen. It is important you do this sooner rather than later, after all, your doctor may be able to help ease the pain but you also want to minimise the possible damage being caused due to the spasms etc.
