  • What is Colonoscopy?

    Colonoscopy is a safe diagnostic tool used to visualise the full lining of the colon and rectum. It uses a long and flexible tube called a colonoscope, which is inserted through the anus and carefully pushed into the rectum and colon. Your doctor will give you a solution to clean out the colon before your scheduled colonoscopy.

  • A doctor may recommend a colonoscopy examination if a patient has symptoms that suggest potential abnormalities in the colon or rectum. The symptoms include rectal bleeding, changes in bowel habits (constipation or diarrhoea), blood in the stool, abnormal weight loss and stomach pain. Colonoscopy can also be used as a routine screening for people who have a history of colon cancer or polyps (non-cancerous growths in the lining of the colon), and to check for inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. Also, colonoscopy can be used to take a biopsy (small tissue of the lining of the colon) and examined it under the microscope to identify an infection. It can also be used to remove colon polyps.
