Colonoscopy: Biopsies are usually only taken of any polyps that dont look normal.

Included: A colonoscope is inserted into the anus, ascends through the rectum, and goes on to check the rest of the bowel. Thus colonoscopy includes examination of the anus and rectum. However, if there is a suspicion of anal pre-cancer (e.g. In HIV positive men) a specialized magnifying instrument is used to assess the anus. ...Read more
Doctor took biopsy on multiple sites during colonoscopy due to inflammation. Said it may be due to prep. Is she being kind to stop me worrying?
Only the duct system: Scopes are inside the intestines. The pancreas is external to the intestines. The opening of the duct leading from the pancreas into the intestines is visible. The endoscopist can enter that duct and inject a dye that will light up the ducts within the pancreas. This procedure can identify problems within the pancreatic duct system. ...Read more
If a biopsy is taken during a colonoscopy will your doctor tell you? And will he tell you what the results were?
Not directly: The colonoscopy does not in any way look at the heart, only at the lining of your colon. If a patient has issues during the test such as chest pain, irregular heart beat or hypotension, coronary artery disease may be considered, but different types of testing will be needed to verify. ...Read more

Close follow up with your doctor also helps a lot. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
During a colonoscopy a few weeks ago i remember my upper body being moved and/or shaken a bit by the nurse and doctor. Any reason for that?
Repositioning: Sometimes during a colonoscopy it is necessary to reposition you. This may allow for easier passage of the scope.

Most colonoscopies are done under sedation and you are not entirely unconscious. You may remember parts of what happens but not the entire context. ...Read more

Had a colonoscopy & laparoscopy for suspected endo the doctor removed 8 haemorrhoids is this normal? Why couldn't the dr see them with just an exam?
Depends on type: Hemorrhoids are typically classified as internal or external depending upon the location and blood source involved. External hemorrhoids can often be seen with a physical exam. However, internal hemorrhoids often can only be seen with some type of endoscopy. I suspect the hemorrhoids treated were likely the latter if they were not discovered on routine physical exam. ...Read more
