One of the most common procedures performed by our specialists is a colonoscopy. This procedure utilizes a long, flexible, narrow tube with a light and tiny camera on one end, called a colonoscope or scope, to look inside your rectum and colon. Colonoscopy can show irritated and swollen tissue, ulcers, polyps, and cancer. A colonoscopy can help a doctor find the cause of unexplained symptoms, such as:
- changes in your bowel activity
- abdominal pain
- bleeding from your anus
- unexplained weight loss.
