A colonoscopy is a simple, diagnostic test that allows your physician to examine the entire colon. Using a flexible instrument called a colonoscope, the physician will be able to guide a small light and camera through your colon and perform a thorough examination. You will be comfortably sedated during the procedure which typically takes about 30 minutes. Most patients report a positive experience and are able to return to regular activities and diet the next day.
Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),1 nearly 135,000 people were diagnosed with the disease in 2012, and more than 51,500 died from it.
A colonoscopy can help your doctor become more pro-active and even prevent colon cancer in addition to other diseases or health risks.
