What Is A Colonoscopy?

During a colonoscopy exam, a long tubular device with a camera attached to it (colonoscope) is inserted into the rectum, allowing your doctor to obtain a more complete evaluation of the inside of the colon.

Why Do You Need A Colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy exam is used to detect any irregularities in the colon and rectum or investigate any symptoms or concerns of the patient. The exam also acts as a cancer screening; men above the age of 50 are typically recommended to receive a colonoscopy every 10 years.
