A member asked:

Abdominal x-ray showed colon thickening. colonoscopy came back fine. no diverticulitis, etc. could the x-ray have been wrong or what could have been seen on x-ray that colonoscopy missed? this was x-ray and not a ct. gi did not appear concerned?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Were you experiencing bowel symptoms for some time? The colonoscopy ruled out the 2 most concerning causes of bowel thickening- inflammatory bowel disease and tumor within the colon. A rare cause like lymphoma would be detected by CT scan, but I think you should relax and follow the gastroenterologist's advice.
