im aware that some of the treatments for this disease can cause a higher risk for cancer but i havent found that it directly causes cancer if untreated. i have an appointment with specialist on the 6th to find out weather or not i have it. by my research , based on the theory from an er doctor and x-rays took at the time that there is a high % that i have this.

Hi, My brother had ankylosing spondylitis and diagnosed with stomach cancer, I think their must be some relationship between ankylosing spondylitis and cancer.
