See below: A colonoscopy is a procedure that involves putting a flexible scope about as thick as your finger up through your anus and into your colon. This way your entire colon can be seen to check for polyps, cancer, or other problems. It works. A good source to learn about all adult screening recommendations is an iphone app called my health checklist 2012. I don't know where you could get the test free.

Colonoscopy: Colonoscopy is a procedure that enables your physician to examine the lining of the colon (large bowel) for abnormalities by inserting a flexible tube with a miniature camera at the end. The tube is about the thickness of your finger into the anus and advancing it slowly into the rectum and colon. Free colonoscopies are offered in new york city and there is a cancer number to call.
