Colonoscopy is a procedure that utilizes a flexible tube with light and camera at the end to look at the inner lining of a person’s large intestine (colon) through a video monitor. During the procedure, the physician has the ability to take a small piece of tissue from the colon (biopsy), remove a polyp (polypectomy), mark a specific spot.

Colonoscopy is a great medical advance, no doubt.

Most colon cancers start out as small growths (polyps) in the lining of the colon that go through subtle changes over the course of several years. Most colon polyps are adenomas, and the vast majority—about 90%—are completely harmless. But because it’s usually not possible to tell.

  • Omg this just turned up in my recommended… How did you know I’m currently waiting for my appointment for this lovely procedure ��…. Thanks for the reminder! ����… ���� 1 like is 1 prayer for my bum!! ����

  • I stopped the video at 31 minutes to ask this question.
    Most colonoscopies also include removing any polyps that are found.
    Many doctors will tell you that they prefer the colonoscopy over the flexible sigmoid, because the flexible sigmoid does not allow them to see what they need to see. But, I am not sure if that is true.
    If you do a 5 minute flexible sigmoid and then find a polyp, would you return to have the polyp removed or….how would the polyps be treated?
    Thank you.

  • Wow, thank you so much, I am being pressured to take this test and my gut instinct is full of distrust and I am sooooooooooooooooo happy and grateful I found you!!! Thank you for your bravery, courage and honesty.. So refreshing!!

  • Self education is your best option. If one chooses to remain ignorant about health matters it’s more likely that they will be exploited by doctors.
