What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?
Up to one in five American adults has irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is one of the most common disorders that doctors see, accounting for more than one out of every 10 patient visits.
Signs and symptoms of IBS disease are mild for most people. Unlike more serious intestinal diseases such as Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis, IBS doesn't cause inflammation changes in bowel tissue or increase your risk of colorectal cancer.
