In brief: It depends.
It depends on which one of these you have, and how extreme an example it is.
Crohn's and ulcerative colitis increase a person's risk for cancer in the intestine and colon respectively. But all 3 may need diet changes, suppportive therapy, pain killers, and other therapy for control, and all 3 can be very debilitative, and sensitive to and cause stress. So it depends on your own situation also.
