Colonoscopy

  • What is a Colonoscopy?

    Colonoscopy is a safe diagnostic tool used to view the full lining of the colon and rectum. It uses a long and flexible tube called a colonoscope, which is inserted through the anus and carefully pushed into the rectum and colon. A solution will be given to clean out the colon before the scheduled colonoscopy.

  • Your doctor might recommend a colonoscopy examination if you have symptoms that suggest potential abnormalities in your colon or rectum. These symptoms include rectal bleeding, changes in bowel habits (constipation or diarrhoea), blood in the stool, abnormal weight loss and abdominal pain. Colonoscopy can also be used as a routine screening for people who have a history of colon cancer or polyps (non-cancerous growths in the lining of the colon), and to check for inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. In addition, it can be used to take a biopsy (small tissue sample) that will be examined under the microscope to identify an infection, and it can be used to remove colon polyps.
