[non-steer-OYD-uhl an-tie-in-FLAM-uh-tor-ee or an-tee-in-FLAM-uh-tor-ee] also called NSAIDs. Pain relievers and fever reducers in the family of aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin®, Advil®), naproxen (Aleve®), and many others. Some studies have found that people taking these drugs have a lower the risk of colorectal cancer and polyps, and possibly some other cancers. But the drugs can also irritate the stomach and cause bleeding and other side effects; some have been linked to higher risk of stroke and heart attack. See also colorectal cancer, polyp, familial adenomatous polyposis.
