Do you suffer with gastrointestinal issues?
Are you experiencing unexplained changes in bowel habit?
Colonoscopy is a minimally invasive exam that helps specialists detect early stages of bowel diseases and problems. Colonoscopy is the endoscopic examination of the colon and the distal part of the small bowel with a CCD camera or a fiber optic camera on a flexible tube passed through the anus. Colonoscopy may provide a visual diagnosis (e.g. ulceration, polyps) and grants the opportunity for biopsy or removal of suspected lesions.
Conditions that call for colonoscopies include gastrointestinal hemorrhage, unexplained changes in bowel habit and suspicion of malignancy.
Colonoscopy is often used to diagnose colon cancer, but it is also frequently used to diagnose inflammatory bowel disease.
In older patients (sometimes even younger ones) an unexplained drop in hematocrit (one sign of anemia) is an indication that calls for a colonoscopy, usually along with an esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD), even if no obvious blood has been seen in the stool (feces).
