Colonoscopy is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inner lining of your large intestine (rectum and colon). A thin, flexible, lighted tube called a colonoscope is inserted into the rectum and entire colon to find ulcers, colon polyps, tumors, and areas of inflammation or bleeding. During a colonoscopy, tissue samples can be collected (biopsy) and abnormal growths can be taken out. Colonoscopy can also be used as a screening test to check for cancer or precancerous growths in the colon or rectum (polyps).
Often, colon cancer presents no noticeable symptoms in the early stages, which is why screenings such as colonoscopies are very important—in these early stages that this form of cancer is most treatable. Learn more about colonoscopies.
