Colorectal Cancer Screening: Colonoscopy

A standard colonoscopy is the most effective colon cancer-screening test and it is the Gold Standard. It is also the only diagnostic and therapeutic test available.

Colonoscopy is a procedure to evaluate the large intestines or colon. A gastroenterologist uses a colonoscope which is a flexible instrument with a small camera on its tip. In a clean colon, the gastroenterologist can visualize the walls of the colon, remove polyps, and obtain biopsies. Colonoscopy may also be performed to evaluate and treat various conditions include bleeding from the colon, unexplained chronic diarrhea, and look for other causes of lower abdominal pain.
