Colonoscopy

A colonoscopy is a procedure where the doctor inserts a thin flexible tube (endoscope) into your rectum and through the colon (large intestine) to examine the lining of the colon. The images picked up by the scope are put on a TV screen for the doctor to look for any problems. Sometimes colon tissue samples and/or polyps are removed to check for further concerns and to prevent colon cancer.
