Colonoscopy

Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. and colonoscopy is one of the most important tools for colon cancer screening. A flexible scope is passed through the rectum to allow the physician to have direct visualization of the colon. During the colonoscopy, the physician is able to view the patient’s colon, obtain biopsies and remove potentially cancerous polyps.
