Colonoscopy

Colonoscopy is an endoscopic diagnostic procedure when a doctor examines the mucous membrane of the colon. This is one of the most effective methods of early diagnosis of bowel cancer. It is used as a screening: the first colonoscopy is recommended for every person at the age of 45. In our clinic the examination can be done quickly, without pain and discomfort. The procedure is carried out by experienced doctors on modern equipment of expert level.

How is a colonoscopy carried out?

A colonoscopy is performed in the state of «medication sleep». The patient is injected intravenously with a modern safe medicine, he falls asleep, while the doctor carries out all the manipulations.

During the examination, a colonoscope is introduced into the colon through the anus – a special tool in the form of a thin flexible hose with a miniature video camera and a light at the end. The doctor examines the entire mucous membrane of the intestine, at this time a video is being recorded and then sent to the patient on email or on electronic storage device.

What can be found during the examination?

In addition to malignant tumors, during colonoscopy can be found:

  • polyps
  • ulceration
  • bleeding areas
  • inflammatory processes in the mucous membrane

Who should have a colonoscopy?

In addition to screening at the age of 45, a doctor may prescribe a colonoscopy to understand the causes of some symptoms:

  • abdominal pain
  • blood in the stool
  • chronic constipation, diarrhea
  • and also the study is carried out if there is a suspicion that the patient has polyps or a malignant tumor in the intestine
