Is celiac disease associated cancer?

Yes. Celiac disease, especially if one has symptoms or small intestine inflammation/damage, does increase one's risk of small intestine cancer (adenocarcinoma, lymphoma). The increased risk may go to normal if one stays on a completely gluten free diet and stops having intestinal symptoms for many years. Celiac disease is not a risk factor for stomach cancer, according to the american cancer society.
Unlikely. The rates of intestinal cancer in patients with celiac disease is low. Speak with your gastrointestinal specialist about any concerns you might have.

Celiac ads & Cancer. Yes, there is an increased risk of lymphomas and certain types of intestinal cancers in celiac sufferers, and that risk is enhanced the longer the disease goes without diagnosis. Having said that, you and your doctor can now plan a schedule of regular surveillance, which you would have started in adulthood anyway. The mean age when cancer was dx'd - in one study - was 47.6 years of age. Read more...

Gluten sensitivity is genetically likely in 40%+/- of the population and may never become evident to those with lesser symptoms.Once it is evident, a gluten free life can be pursued and life should improve.
