  • Colonoscopy

    Colonoscopy is a procedure that allows a doctor to examine the lining of the colon (large intestine) for abnormalities using a long, flexible tube and camera. A colonoscopy looks for signs of colon or rectal cancer and evaluates symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, rectal bleeding and unexplained weight loss.
